On Friday 21st February our Fairtrade Forum along with staff from Lush, led an assembly about Fairly Traded Products. They discussed Fairtrade products as well as Rainforest Alliance, Traidcraft and Flocert products. Lush also brought along products and children were able to buy some of them at the end of the assembly.
Fairtrade Fortnight has started this week and each class is having a competition to see who can collect stickers from Fairtrade, Rainforest Alliance, Traidcraft and Flocert products.
Every child in our school is a member of a school forum. At the beginning of the year they choose which forum they would like to join. Each forum has children from P1-P7 represented and the senior pupils are elected by their forum group to become Chairperson and Secretary. The Chairperson leads the meeting and the Secretary records the minutes. Everyone is encouraged to have their say and children listen well to the views of others. Congratulations to the pupils below who were elected as Chairperson and Secretary.
