Fairtrade Fortnight

Written on 01/03/2020

As part of Fairtrade fortnight we are running a poster competition. The theme of the poster is on Cocoa.  The chocolate that we consume in Ireland is produced in countries by farmers who never receive the income their efforts deserve. This has a negetive effect on farmers long term development. Women in particular suffer from the unfair growing of cocoa & production of chocolate.

Students are asked to make a poster that tells the story of cocoa/chocolate. You may also focus on an issue/fact associated with it. 

To help you with this, please take the Fairtrade chocolate quiz, to test your chocolate knowledge 🍫 ➡️ QUIZ. Lots of information and ideas can be gained from completing it. 

Entries must be submitted to Mr. Kehir in RM. 17 by schools end on Thursday 5th March.  There is a prize of a Fairtrade Easter egg for the best 10 entries 🎉 Best of luck!
