St Stephen's

Building Each Other Up in Love and Learning

Roll up! Roll up! Year 6 will be holding St. Stephen’s C of E Primary School’s first ever ‘Fairtrade Fair’ this year!

Roll up! Roll up! Year 6's first ever ‘Fairtrade Fair’!

When? Thursday 4th July 2019 at 9.30am

Where? The School Studio

Who? Everyone in the school community! The more the merrier!

Year 6 would like to share their future learning and knowledge with all the parents in the school community and inspire you towards making a change and making your breakfast count by choosing Fairtrade. Every day, millions of farmers and workers in developing countries work hard to grow the food we eat - yet many do not know where their next meal is coming from. It is simply wrong.

However, by coming along to our event and choosing Fairtrade at breakfast (or Fairtrade at any time of the day if you take away some of our tasty treats!), you will be helping to change this. We are hoping that because of our event, many will now know they can put food on the table for the people they care about, all year round.

We will whisk you off to South America to learn about some of the typical breakfasts and treats made in the region of Colombia where the stars of our Fairtrade films we will watch live and work. Whether you prefer sweet or savoury, there is plenty of inspiration, from arepas (corn cakes) to banana cake.

If you are more of a (tea) bag than a (coffee) bean person, then how about sampling one of three unusual teas – they’re tea-rrific!

If you want to expand your Fairtrade ingredients cupboard, then you will have come to the right place. Take a look at our projects and products to inspire your breakfast where there’s something to brighten up even the dullest of starts to the day.

Finally, for when there is no time to make breakfast at home, we have put together a list of three places where you may not have expected to find your Fairtrade cup of coffee – so you will always be in the know for coffee on the go. We hope this event will give you enough inspiration to create a memorable Fairtrade breakfast over Fairtrade Fortnight and throughout the rest of the year.

We hope to see as many of you as possible to celebrate this event and to show our heartfelt thanks for all that you do. Sit down for breakfast; stand up for farmers!
