2017-18 Sustaining Our World
Fairtrade fortnight March 2018
We sold chocolate chip muffins which P6 Fairtrade group baked and hot chocolate as well as our usual Fairtrade Tuck shop goods.
2016-17 Sustaining Our World
Our Fairtrade group continues to hold a Fairtrade Tuck Shop every Wednesday where they sell a variety of Fairtrade products.
The Fairtrade group received their FAIR ACTIVE award in January 2017 by taking part in the 90Kg Rice Challenge. They sold 90Kg of Fairtrade Kilombero rice and by completing this challenge Kirkhill Primary School has enabled a Malawian Farmer to send a child to school for a year. Well Done!
2015-16 Sustaining Our World
Our new Fairtrade Group held a short whole school assembly on Friday 8th October 2015. Pablo the Super Banana was introduced to the school.
The Fairtrade group were awarded “We are a Fair Aware School” certificate.
The Fairtrade Group have now started a Fairtrade tuck shop and are raising awareness of Fairtrade issues around the school. Fairtrade goods have now arrived at school and our tuck shop is now open every Wednesday at morning break. The Enterprise group and Fairtrade group run the tuck shop. They will apply for Fairtrade status later on in the year.
Mrs Hilditch has been working closely with the staff and has purchased books about Sustaining Our Environment for staff to use with their classes.
