A World Food Fair for families and friends was organised by Year 2 pupils at Hillside Community First School, Verwood. One of its aims was to encourage the local community to support Fairtrade Fortnight, which begins on 25 February.
To get into the spirit of things, the children dressed up to represent worldwide countries and set up stalls in the hall, displaying their knowledge of healthy eating choices and showing where food comes from around the world.
They were joined by members of the Verwood Fairtrade Steering Group.
As a Rights Respecting School, the pupils investigated how Fairtrade enables children in the Third World to have rights to good health care, clean water, nutritious food, improved living conditions, education and time to relax and play.
