Press Relase: Fairtrade Easter at Belfairs High School

Fairtrade is well established at Belfairs High School and various projects will be taking place. Our picture 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 fairly-traded one.
