Monday was the first day of Fair Trade week and 6JC went to the whole school assembly to find out what Fair trade was all about. It was very interesting as our visitor told us all about how farmers in some poor countries could get more money for their hard work through the Fair Trade system that has been set up. If we spend 60p on a chocolate bar the farmer normally gets 3p for all his hard work, hardly anything. If we buy Fair Trade chocolate instead, the farmer actually gets 17p. A massive difference. The chocolate costs the same amount of money so buying Fair Trade chocolate is probably the best thing to do and it doesnt cost us anymore. Yum. I like chocolate.
