This year, in response to Pope Francis’ ‘Fratelli Tutti’ and the outcomes of COP26, we took part in Fairtrade Fortnight 2022 from 21st February to the 6th March. The school came together to learn from the people who grow our food and drinks, mine our gold and who grow the cotton in our clothes – people who are often exploited and under paid. Through lessons, the children were equipped with the knowledge and skills to know how we can shape a more compassionate and sustainable world. As part of this, each class participated in the Fairtrade Fortnight Youth Exhibition to create a message to inspire climate action and remind exhibition visitors that we must listen to the farmers most effected by climate change. This could come in form or poetry, letters, art work, videos etc. Have a look at the amazing work by our school.

We continued to support, Fairtrade as our Lenten charity. We fundraised through a various of activities such as Fairtrade mufti day, bunny hops, Chicken run, Easter egg raffle, bonnet parade and recycled games competitions.

Children throughout the school took the time to reflect and think about the Easter story through the stations of the cross.
