Leeds Development Education Centre held its annual Fairtrade School Celebration at Leeds Civic Hall Banqueting Suite on Friday 4th March 2016. Europe Direct Leeds presented their tombola stall, which had all the children clamouring to have a go!
After registration and a welcome from Lord Mayor’s representative Cllr Townsley, there was a film on tea and sustainability, then the opportunity to take part in workshops:
Fairtrade Food Facts – finding out what food is Fairtrade and where it comes from
Chocolate Game – playing games and learning about Fairtrade chocolate
Climate and Fairtrade Breakfast – designing a custom breakfast while learning about food miles and Fairtrade
Make a Buzz for Fairtrade – finding out about the lives of Fairtrade honey farmers, hearing stories, playing games and creating a funky foam bee!
Football Fever – finding out about the journey of a football to here
Bunting Brilliance – creating bunting to show the benefits of Fairtrade
There were stalls from the Bala Fairtrade Football company, the Beehive Fairtrade Shop, Leeds Development Education Centre, Schools of Sanctuary, Zimbabwe Educational Trust and, of course, Europe Direct Leeds!
