We have a new team TED. Our members were voted in by their classes and are very happy to be supporting their school.
This term we will be looking at Fair Trade. Before Christmas we sent a questionnaire to our classes. The results showed that our children weren't really aware of Fair Trade. Following a special assembly, a stall at the Christmas fair and this terms work, we intend to increase awareness and also the use of Fair Trade produce.
