Ethos group at Fairtrade Conference

Last Friday, several members of our Ethos group, attended a Fairtrade Conference at County Hall, Preston, hosted by Lancashire County Council. The children were very impressed with the grandeur of County Hall and had a really busy day learning all about Fairtrade and why it is such a crucial support for farmers in poorer communities around the world. They took part in fascinating, interactive workshops focusing on tea production in Kenya, chocolate production in Ghana and the football producing industry in Pakistan. By the end of it, they were incredibly knowledgeable about the importance of Fairtrade and the Fairtrade Premium on so many families' lives. They are now planning on running some Fairtrade events after the half term, to educate our children, raise the profile of Fairtrade and have a bit of fun! A big well done to Megan, Nikita, Paige and Faye for being wonderful ambassadors for the school and gaining so much from this brilliant conference.
