Goal 5: Our school promotes and takes action for Fairtrade at least once a term in the school and at least once year in the wider community. This way it becomes a regular part of what we do and allows everyone to take part in helping to bring about a fairer world. • Coffee morning • Trail in the community • School’s own Fairtradereuseablebags • Tea dance • Fashion show • Mural/collage for school or a local place • Writing to your MP
