Whetley Hill children get into Fairtrade

February 15th, 2012 · 9 Comments · Fun Stuff, international, pictures, special events


The following article was in the Telegraph and Argos yesterday:


Children at a Bradford primary school have been learning all about Fairtrade.
Year six pupils at Whetley Primary School presented information about the scheme and products were also donated by stores across the district.

Teacher Victoria Rehman said: “It’s been very good. Asda, Morrisons and the Co-op all gave the school all kinds of stuff like biscuits, teabags and breakfast bars. We’ve made up three hamper baskets to raffle off.

“The children wrote really lovely, really good letters to the companies thanking them. There’s also a Fairtrade day next week and the school will be doing something for that.”

    Watch this space for some examples of the letters Year 6 have written thanking the supermarkets for their support. We raised a staggering £108.00 from the raffle!!
    Thank you everyone who bought a raffle ticket.
