Fairtrade Fortnight runs from 25th February until 10th March this year and so is straight after half term!
This year’s campaign is about ensuring that cocoa farmers are paid fairly for their work and are able to live a dignified life.
Can you “Bake with a Difference” for Fairtrade?
We will be having a competition to see who can bake the tastiest cake or biscuits with the most delicious Fairtrade ingredients. If you want to enter please collect a form from the office from Friday 15th February.
Please bring in your cakes on Monday 4th March when they will be judged and prizes awarded.
At 2.30 pm on that day our Mini Vinnies will host a Big Brew Coffee Afternoon when the cakes will be available to buy. Please come along and support Fairtrade!
If you are interested in a career in teaching, come along to the Durham Town Hall, 14th March from 4.30pm.
Today, Alisha and Reece, from Gateshead Football Club, came to present our Year 5/6 team with medals and their trophy following the tournament win in November. Reece is a local boy from Ryton – who proves that hard work and determination really do pay off.
We’re off to York next week for the next round. Good luck boys!
