The S6 Fair Trade Committee worked tirelessly throughout the year to raise awareness of Fair Trade products in Williamwood High School. The committee sold Fair Trade products in the Street during Fridays at lunchtime and held a very successful ‘Banana Bread Bake Off’ in April. These events were to raise awareness of the importance of purchasing Fair Trade bananas in order to help the World’s poorest banana famers. As a result of all their hard work, Williamwood High School has now achieved two awards from The Fair Trade Organisation for being a Fair Trade Aware School and a Fair Trade Active school. Congratulations to all of the pupils involved in achieving this success.
