Shevington have been busy the past two weeks raising awareness of Fairtrade in school.

In geography, year 7 and 8 have been learning all about the importance of Fairtrade, learning specifically about Fairtrade Footballs – who knew they even existed?!

Years 7 – 11 have been learning all about the importance of taking a break in PD and how we can make our break better for other people by choosing Fairtrade products.

Staff have also got involved by having Fairtrade tea and coffee at their weekly meetings.

At break time on Fridays we have been selling Fairtrade products in our new Fairtrade tuck shop – this will be open every Friday break time and will be known as ‘Fairtrade Friday’.

All this has put Shevington on track to receive their first Fairtrade award, ‘FairAware’ and put us on track of becoming a Fairtrade School.
