Fairtrade Fortnight Fairtrade
Fortnight is coming up straight after half term, beginning Tuesday 28th February 2017. This year it’s “Put Fairtrade in your Break”. We will be holding a “Fairtrade Bake Off” for all you budding Mary Berry or Paul Hollywood who wish to take part – so get baking and remember only to use Fairtrade ingredients. You can then bring all your creations (cakes, cupcakes etc) to our Fairtrade Afternoon which will be held in our school hall on Friday 10th March at 2pm.

A big thank you to everyone who came along and supported our Fairtrade afternoon! We would also like to thank the Co-op, Tesco, Divine Chocolate and Starbucks for all their generous donations to make the afternoon a success. Well done to the Fairtrade Committee who raised £100!
This year we will be celebrating Fairtrade Fortnight. The Fairtrade Committee have been busy organising a special assembly and event for when we return back to school after the half term break.
The Fairtrade Committee would like to hold our annual Fairtrade raffle. This was very successful last year and we raised over £ 100. However we need your help.
Please can you donate just one Fairtrade product so that the fairtrade committee can make up a large hamper. Products include a range of fairtrade chocolate, Coffee, tea bags, biscuits.
Please bring your donation to school the week beginning 22nd February. Raffle tickets will also be sold on Monday. Tickets will cost 20p each.
Tickets will be drawn at the Fairtrade afternoon on Thursday 3rd March. This will be a fairtrade 'breakfast' with speakers from Starbucks, with coffees and fairtrade snacks to eat.
On Friday 11th December we will be holding our Fairtrade Christmas fair. We will be selling products such as chocolates, Christmas treats and gifts. Please bring along £1- £3 to spend on the stall. The stall will be run from 2.30pm onwards where classes will be invited to come along and purchase Christmas gifts and snacks. Also, parents and carers are invited to come along as well! Luke
Hi, my name is Esme and I am in Year 6. I am the chair of the Fairtrade Committee. Along with Mrs Tuff, I ask questions and talk to the other Fairtrade members about targets we must achieve. We must aim for fair pay schemes for farmers around the world who are in need. The only way we can make a good profit is with your help. When we do different events we need your help with fundraising. You can also by products with the Fairtrade icon on them. I hope you all enjoy me being your Fairtrade chair. Thank you. Esme.

Friday 27th February.
This week we went to the CO-OP to find out about all the different fair trade products that you can find at the supermarket.
We hope to tell you all about what we found out next week during our Fair trade afternoon. We were very suprised to find that you can buy fair trade cotton wool and roses.
We hope that you are able to join us on Thursday 5th March at 2 pm in the school hall.
There will be many fair trade items on sale. There will also be fairtrade tea, coffee and biscuits available.

Fairtrade Christmas Sale
Our Fairtrade Christmas Sale was a great success.
We are pleased to announce that we raised £334.

We look forward to our next event which will take place during

Fairtrade Meeting 5.12.14
'' This Fairtrade Committee met this week to organise the Fairtrade Christmas Sale which
will take place on Thursday 18th December in the school hall.
We decided as a group that we needed to make posters to advertise the sale.
We worked together and made posters to put up around the school to let everyone know
what was happening. We asked the children in the school what they would like us to sell at
the Fair trade Christmas Sale.'' Diya
We are your Fairtrade Committee
St Joseph’s Primary School has gained Fairtrade Status. This means that both pupils and teachers hear about and are actively involved in the learning, awareness and promotion of Fairtrade. Our Fairtrade representatives are a very important part of this. They are chosen from Years 2 to year 6 and elected by the pupils in the school. The committee meet once a week. It is the Fairtrade representatives who drive all the Fairtrade activities in school, suggesting ideas and leading assemblies. They ask for ideas for events from the rest of the school which they then discuss and organise.
The aim is for 100% pupil awareness of what Fairtrade is and why it’s important. Pupils know they are part of something that is happening all over the country and around the world-and it’s great fun too!
My name is John I am in year 6 and I’m the Chair of the Committee. I have a very special job on the committee. I have to try and run the meeting with help from Mrs Wells. I help prepare the agenda and make sure that everyone is involved.
Here is some useful information that I would like to share with you :
‘’Did you know that you can buy Fairtrade things in lots of different places in shops including supermarkets; special shops e.g Fair Dos in Canton, Cardiff, on the internet e.g, Traidcraft
Framers and producers need to prove that their things are done correctly so they deserve the Fairtrade mark. People who work for Fairtrade groups get fair pay schemes which help local people like helping schools get clean water and health care.
St Joseph’s has Fairtrade school status we had to show that the school teaches everyone about what Fairtrade is and tries hard to use fairtrade produce whenever we can. Teachers, parents and children all need to know about Fairtrade.’’ John year 6
My Name is Diya and I am ten years old. I am in year 6. I am the secretary I take all the notes at the meetings. I help prepare the agenda. I have to make sure that everyone knows when we are meeting and give out dates of events and assemblies
I have been selected to be on the Fairtrade committee. I am the secretary for the committee. This involves taking the minutes help setting the agenda. I also discuss and arrange events. We had an assembly during ‘One World Week’ we had to share with the school and wider communities how we are trying to make the world a fairer place. After the assembly we served Fairtrade teas and biscuits. The money we made from the sale we sent to Cafod. The
next Event that we are planning is the Christmas Fairtrade Sale. Diya Year 6
On Thursday 18th December at 2.30 pm we will be holding a Christmas Sale in the school hall. It will be a good opportunity to buy those last minute Christmas presents and at the same time treat yourself to a Fairtrade cup of tea and cake. We hope that you will be able to come along and support us.
