Fairtrade Fortnight

Fairtrade Fortnight 2024 🍫🍌
Lots of events and activites took place here at BCS for Fairtrade Fortnight. Students from our social justice club took on the role of teachers where they visited all of the 1st year CSPE classes to teach the students about what fairtrade means and how it benefits the farmers and those producing our food. Well done to 6th year students Maria Navadze, Esther Edosa and Aisling O Brien for taking on the task of peer teaching and to the 1st years for their excellent participation and engagement.
There was an awareness stand in the canteen with some fairtrade goodies given out to students and staff. 1st year home economics students created fairtrade posters which were on display in the canteen area, fairtrade hot chocolate was enjoyed & 5th years made caramel squares using ethically produced chocolate.
2nd year students Seanan McKernan and Sophie Allen called into the shops in town to discuss what fairtrade options the local businesses have in stock. They were delighted with the interest from all the shops about ordering more fairtrade chocolate in so that its readily available in town to purchase.
