Here at St Cuthbert Mayne School we are proud to support Fairtrade where possible. We have an active and growing Fairtrade Student Comittee who create innovative and exciting ways in which we can promote Fairtrade in school!
Visit the Fairtrade website at www.fairtrade.org.uk for more info.
We were awarded Fairtrade status in March 2011. To achieve this we had to demonstrate that we actively promoted and used Fairtrade where possible—both in and out of the classroom. This project had been growing for at least four years prior to our status being awarded with all students from years 7 to 13 getting involved.
We regularly hold a Fairtrade market every Friday lunchtime where we sell a wide
range of products from chocolate and cereal bars to pencils and gift items.
We organise activities and educational talks from various Fairtrade organizations
which helps raise awareness amongst the school community.
