The Design and Technology Department at Greenford High School have continued to support Fairtrade by setting up an eye-catching Fairtrade display in their new Food technology classroom. All pupils studying food tech. have Fairtrade ingredients highlighted on their recipes each week- which shows the students that they can select the Fairtrade version of the product. Each week, Fairtade will be even more prominent in the classroom as we have supplied the teacher with a stylish apron, explicitly branded with the Fairtrade logo and colours (modelled here).
On the 31st of November a group of volunteers from the Ealing Fairtrade Group set up a cake decorating activity for children, in the local Hobbycraft- Greenford. During the free three-hour workshop, about 40 children took part in the free half-term activity. The children had great fun using Fairtrade Icing Sugar and Cadbury Fairtrade Buttons to decorate cupcakes. Everyone had lots of fun and the children enjoyed refining their cake decorating skills while finding out a little more about Fairtrade. There were leaflets for parents to take away and stickers as well for the children. The most popular part of the workshop was, of course, eating the cakes!
Thanks to Hobbycraft Greenford for helping organise the workshop in their store and to the Co-operative for donating Fairtrade decorating items.
