During Fairtrade Fortnight, we received the good news that after submitting evidence of our various Citizenship themed activities, Lourdes Secondary had successfully renewed our Fairtrade School status!

Once again, a number of events took place in Lourdes Secondary during Fairtrade Fortnight 2013:

The Fairtrade Tuck Shop reappeared during several lunchtimes, selling a range of chocolate and fruit juice. With the help of members of the Eco School Committee and the Justice & Peace Group, almost £215 was raised to help support the producers and their families in Developing Countries; thanks to – Francesca Woulfe, Christie Jordan, Alannah Pollock and Mehrunisa Khan of S5, Sybaris Ali and Andrew Quinn  of S6 for their help.

The Fairtrade Big Brew saw over 50 staff enjoy a tea and coffee morning on Friday 8th of March where there were also Fairtrade biscuits and a raffle of Fairtrade products. As a result of this event, a cheque for £100 was sent to SCIAF.
