Press Release: Fairtrade Fortnight 2010 at Belfairs High School

Fairtrade is well established at Belfair's High School and various projects will be taking place this Fairtrade Fortnight. The picture above shows Year 7 students enjoying Fairtrade bananas in front of this year’s hall display.

“We highlight Fairtrade Fortnight on the school website,” said Community Projects Co-ordinator Jan Andrews, “and run a series of Fairtrade assemblies for one week – this year we shall be concentrating on fairly traded cocoa beans. The emphasis will be on the chocolate manufacturers who are only buying fairly traded cocoa beans – and providing training for their farmers to improve the quality and quantity of their harvests year on year.

"We will also be highlighting “The Big Swap” – the Fairtrade Foundation is urging everyone to just change one of their usual choice of a drink or foodstuff – for a FAIRTRADE one."
