Mini Vinnies

We are a FairAchiever School!

We are delighted to say that after submitting our evidence, we have contacted by the Fairtrade Foundation to say that they have awarded us with ‘FairAchiever’ status once again because of the outstanding quality of the school’s work and commitment to Fairtrade.

We showed that we continue to learn about Fair Trade in the classroom, use Fairtrade products and take action to promote Fairtrade in the school and wider community.

Thank you to everyone in the School who has learnt about, promoted and taken action for Fairtrade!

Mini Vinnies’ Fairtrade Bakesale

On Monday 4th March, as part of our Fairtrade Fortnight celebrations,  Mini Vinnies organised a Fairtrade Bakesale.

There was a fantastic array of cakes together with Fairtrade Tea and Coffee.  Thank you to everyone who prepared the cakes and biscuits and to everyone who came along to support the event. A special thank you to Reception Class for baking delicious Fairtrade chocolate chip cookies.

In total, £125 was raise and will be sent to  Traidcraft and the Fairtrade Foundation who support farmers in poor communities to make the world a better, fairer place by fighting injustice in trade.

Fantastic Fairtrade Bake-off!

Thank you to everyone who entered the Fairtrade Bake-off on Monday. We were very impressed by all the amazing and wonderful cakes and biscuits which were made using Fairtrade ingredients.

Choosing winners was very difficult as all the entries were delicious and all had included Fairtrade products such as  chocolate, cocoa powder, bananas vanilla essence,cinnamon, all kinds of sugar and Earl Grey tea!

Well done to all the children from Nursery to Year 6 who found Fairtrade ingredients and made such delicious cakes and biscuits.
