Fairtrade

Fairtrade at Bridlewood

At Bridlewood we believe that Fairtrade is an important matter. Fairtrade is important because it gives farmers in developing countries a better deal. We are trying to get Bridlewood pupils and parents to become more aware of Fairtrade and how it helps. We have set up a Fairtrade school steering group and there is one person from each class from Year 1 upwards. The group is run by Mr Baker. In 2012 Bridlewood were the first Primary School in Swindon to be awarded the Fairtrade status

Fairtrade Friday - 11 March 2016

Today, as part of Fairtrade Fortnight, we all worked in different groups and took part in lessons all about Fairtrade. We learnt how important it is to understand how to spot Fairtrade products when we are out shopping. At Bridlewood, we know that Fairtrade is important for farmers, to make sure they earn the money they deserve. View the pictures here....

Fairtrade Competition

Our Fairtrade committee had the idea of having a collage competition for Fairtrade week. Each class collected Fairtrade wrappers and made a collage which they stuck on their door for judging. Here they are! The winning collage was done by Cherry class. They won a Fairtrade cake!
