26 February - 11 March 2018
We have a just released a brand new range of films, games, lesson plans, events guides and even Virtual Reality headsets to inspire wonderful whole school learning experiences. Firstly, get the dates in your calendar – Monday 26 February to Sunday 11 March.
For 2018, we’re asking you to ‘come on in’ to Fairtrade to stand with farmers and close the door on exploitation. Invite others to your Fortnight events. Show them the difference that Fairtrade can make.
See what other schools are doing and share what you are up to at @FairtradeUKed. Don’t forget you can also enter our Fairtrade Fortnight Award with a chance to win £350 to spend on your future Fairtrade activities – there’s more information here.
These resources are all completely free and cover both our usual subjects areas like PSHE and Geography but also new ones including Music, Black History, Business studies and English. Our Schools Action Guide has provides ideas for how your school can get involved and our Event Pack you can order for free for posters, stickers and ideas to theme events in your school
Your students will love getting involved in bake sales, quizzes, walkathons, or a dress-up day where kids can go bananas on a Fairtrade-themed outfit! Money raised will support farmers to fight for a fairer deal so they can break out of poverty. You can order your free fundraising donation box here. Simply fold it together and encourage people to donate at your event.
Watch this space for more updates soon including a video and assembly on Coobana. If you have any queries then feel free to email us on firstname.lastname@example.org
