Burnside Primary were having a fair deal recently.
The school were celebrating Fairtrade Fortnight with several events.
Youngsters at the school are currently gunning for their third Fairtrade award, having been given the FairAware award in March 2014 and a FairActive award in June 2014.
Now the school is hoping to lift a Fair Achiever award too.
Head teacher Helen McGarvey said: “We had loads of fun celebrating Fairtrade Fortnight this year.
“Our fairtrade committee which is run by our teacher Miss Sara Ferry, organised lots of exciting activities including fairtrade snack day, a fairtrade treasure hunt andFairtrade tasting sessions for primary one and two.
“We also held our fairtrade big breakfast as part of this year’s campaign, which was called ‘Sit down for Breakfast,Stand up for Farmers’.
“We invited the families of our primary four class and we were also joined by the pupil council of Spittal primary, our local neighbours.
“We would like to thank the Co- operative in Castlemilk and Rutherglen who ran our tasting sessions and donated fairtrade items to our breakfast event. We would also like to thank our families for their very generous and delicious donations.
“This year we are going for our third and final award and have just submitted our application to become a FairAchiever school.
“Becoming a fairtrade school means joining a worldwide movement – a movement where young people learn that, whatever their age, they have the power to make a difference in the world.
“It offers a great opportunity to look at global issues such as where our food comes from and how we are connected to people around the world.”
