Fairtrade Fayre

The Justice and Peace Group will be selling fairly traded products from the Rainbow Turtle shop in Paisley throughout Lunchtime on Friday 29th November in the Social Area. Goods on sale will include Tea, Coffee, Confectionery, Advent Calendars and Christmas Cards and Jewellery and Gift Wrap. This has become an annual Lourdes Secondary event and thanks to the support from staff and pupils, the 40 minute sale has brought in more than a normal day’s takings for the Fairtrade shop. Please bring in a bit of extra cash as you have done in previous years ( ‘Plastic’ can be accommodated for the first time so a card will do)

Thanking you for your anticipated generosity and continued support,


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.
