The fairandfunky Fairtrade Conference: ‘Take a Break with Fairtrade’ brings together Primary Schools from across Kirklees to celebrate Fairtrade Fortnight. The conference will ignite enthusiasm and interest in both pupils and teachers to maintain awareness and understanding of Fairtrade and how it can be taught within busy classrooms.

 

Interactive workshops involving drama, literacy, real life stories, and chocolate tasting from fairandfunky, Couer De Xocolat, Pockets Theatre and Bala Sports will inspire delegates to ‘Take a Break with Fairtrade!’ This is the only conference in Kirklees to combine Fairtrade and the arts, offering professional development for teachers and innovative learning for students.

 

All students will take part in the Just Trading Scotland rice challenge at the event and receive a bag of delicious Kilombero rice along with a goody bag of fair trade treats.
