Schools in the District supporting Fairtrade

Many schools support and promote Fairtrade and members from several schools have been attending workshops about Fairtrade some relating to gaining Fairtrade status.

Here are some examples:

At the end of the 2016 school year, leavers were proud of thier Fairtrade hoodies supplied by Koolskools.
