Fair Trade Bake Sale
It's Fairtrade Fortnight now and our students are working to learn more about where our food and other goods come from and how farmers and children in Developing Countries are treated.
We hope to gain a "Fairtrade School" Certificate for our school.
We ask that you all do your bit to choose Fairtrade Products in your supermarkets as much as possible.
As Martin Luther King once said: "Justice denied anywhere diminishes justice everywhere".
