Bournemouth primary school backs bid for town's fair trade status
11:00am Friday 27th December 2013 in News
A PRIMARY school in Bournemouth has joined the long list of schools that are helping back the council’s bid to achieve fair trade status for the town.
Children from St Walburga’s Primary School took part in a number of special Fairtrade lessons and assemblies to gain an understanding of the food they eat and how it gets to them.
The school was also visited by the Co-operative who donated over 400 bananas as part of their pledge to mainstream Fairtrade into everyone’s shopping baskets.
Cabinet Member for Planning and Environment, Cllr David Smith said: “Understanding where the food we eat comes from is vital if we are to make the right choices and buy food we know has given producers fair market value for their goods.
“We have received fantastic support from everyone in Bournemouth and it’s great to see St Walburga’s getting on board with the campaign.”
