Following the Primary Fairtrade Conference at the end of January, the delegates are busy preparing for Fairtrade Fortnight which begins on Monday 29th February.
At Andreas School there is now a Fairtrade display in the entrance hall, with room for additions as the Fortnight progresses. A Fairtrade Bala football has been ordered, and the delegates are preparing to launch the Fortnight with an assembly for the whole school. On both Fridays there will be Fairtrade items available in the tuck shop.
The Fairtrade Foundation is promoting Breakfasts this year, concentrating on key products that most of us use, encouraging us to swap to Fairtrade brands. Perhaps you could have a Fairtrade breakfast – on your own, with friends or family, in your work place or in your community. If you do, let us know and we can keep a count of all the Fairtrade breakfasts on the Island.
