Fairtrade Fortnight

Mrs Ramsumair writes: “Wellington School has been celebrating Fairtrade Fortnight and International Women’s Day today! Mr Cropper’s Year 12 Business Studies students have created posters and PowerPoints that have been displayed around school to raise awareness of Fairtrade. They are busy filming an informative video in today’s lesson, which we look forward to showcasing next week in tutor time.

French classes in Years 8,9 and 10 have been learning about cocoa famers on the Ivory Coast and how their lives have been impacted by the Fairtrade Premium. They have also learnt some choc-tastic French vocabulary!

The MFL corridor was a hive of activity this lunchtime, with pupils from Year 11 congregating to listen to traditional music from the Ivory Coast and complete a quiz on Fairtrade Facts. The winners were given some yummy Fairtrade Chocolate prizes!”
