Thursday 5th March
Our Fair Trade fortnight got started with a staff event - The Fair Trade Tidy Tea break, where teachers baked and enjoyed tasting some amazing Fair Trade cakes. A big thank you to those who brought something in. The tea and coffee was also switched to Fair Trade products.
Today we made Fair Trade banana smoothies and sold them to all of the children who wanted to buy them. This was a great success and members of the group worked very hard to collect money, serve the smoothies and clean up afterwards. Again a big thank you to all children and staff who helped to make this event run smoothly.
Diolch yn fawr iawn!!
Miss Griffin & Mrs Hussey

The children have had a very busy few week preparing for our healthy eating week. On December 8th we will be encouraging every children to come to school with a piece of fruit to eat at break time. The best classes in both the Juniors and Foundation Phase will get a special treat at the end of the term. We are also encouraging more salad to be eaten at lunch time and we will be putting posters and displays up to encourage children to eat at least a piece of salad with their meal at lunch time.

The School Nutrition Action group (S.N.A.G) was set up in January 2014 and it is run by Miss Griffin, Mrs Hussey, Mrs Price, Mrs Stone and Mrs Wilkins. The children decided to give us the name of the Fairtrade and Healthy Living group. The club takes place every other Thursday lunchtime in Class 3 and there are two children representing each class from year 3 – year 6. The aim of the group is to improve the eating habits of all of the children in the school and to promote the awareness of using Fairtrade products. We have already achieved the 3rd phase of the Healthy Schools award, we have become a Fair Aware school and we have supported the Eco Committee with achieving the Platinum Flag. We are now working towards phase 4 of the Healthy Schools award and we are soon to become a Fair Active school.
