Fair Trade fortnight - Laugharne Primary School

At the start of Fair Trade fortnight, on a sunny spring morning in Laugharne Primary School pupils, staff and community representatives came together to celebrate the school becoming the 500th Fair Trade school in the UK. Guests were welcomed to the school by Nia Ward the Headteacher. Pupils described the work they had undertaken to gain Fair Trade status at a special school assembly. The First Minister, Carwyn Jones sent a personal message of congratulations and was represented by John Griffiths the Counsel General for the Assembly Government. Mr Griffiths is a strong supporter of the Fair Trade initiative and recently visited Fair Trade projects in Uganda. He congratulated the staff and the pupils on their hard work and achievements and presented the school with the Fair Trade flag. The Fair Trade Foundation arranged for Kwame Benson, President of the Fair Trade Farmers in West Africa to meet the children. He described how important Fair Trade was to his part of the world and the real difference Fair Trade was making. Local Cllr Jane Tremlett was very impressed with the pupil's presentation and felt that the teachers, she and the wider community had learned a great deal from the work that the young people had undertaken. After the assembly, pupils took part in a video conferencing session with children in a school financed by Fair Trade in Uganda. Children from both countries were able to question each other about their lives, and the responses from the Ugandan children were very humbling, and made Laugharne children appreciate even further the importance of supporting a worthy cause such as Fair Trade
