We have now achieved the highest of the three Fairtrade school awards. This is the FairActive award. This award means our school has fully embedded Fairtrade into our daily life and work to raise awareness of Fairtrade in our local community.

Fairtrade Fortnight was once again a great success with the school Fairtrade Group organising a range of activities for Fairtrade day, including a raffle and baking competition. The baking
competition was won by Lizzie Harte in Year 6 with her amazing Fairtrade design. Many thanks to all those who sent in goods for the Fairtrade raffle or baked goodies for the competition and stall. We
were delighted with the amount raised for charity: £146 went to Traidcraft Exchange to support Fairtrade enterprises and £146 went to Katherine House Hospice.

As part of Fairtrade Fortnight on Friday 9th March we also helped Deddington Fairtraders to run a Traidcraft stall selling Fairtrade goods.
Thank you from the Fairtrade Group
You could wear non-school uniform with the Fairtrade Mark colours [green, blue and black].
Pupils brought in a Fairtrade item to add to our raffle. Raffle tickets were on sale at breaktime and cost 20p each.
Pupils also made cakes or biscuits containing Fairtrade ingredients. We had a competition to see which class did the most baking! All our yummy cakes and biscuits were be on sale at breaktimes for 20p to raise money for Fairtrade.
At 2:45 - 3:45 we also had some Fairtrade stalls held in Yr3 – pupils and their families came to buy Fairtrade goods. Any cakes or biscuits still left were also on sale here.
Thank you from the Faitrade Group (and Mrs Knox Y5)
