Dykehead Primary's Fairtrade morning
DYKEHEAD Primary School celebrated Fairtrade Fortnight by hosting a coffee morning in the school.
The event was very well attended by parents and invited guests, including North Lanarkshire deputy provost James Robertson, councillor Charles Cefferty, and David Smith, customer service manager of Airdrie Savings Bank in Shotts.
The children of the school’s Fairtrade committee made contact with the Shotts Co-operative, who kindly agreed to run a tasting stall of Fairtrade products.
Paul Bridges, of Getting Better Together in Shotts, generously supplied Fairtrade tea, coffee, biscuits and snacks.
The children delighted the guests with a Fairtrade song and a presentation about the work the school had done to promote Fairtrade, including a popular ‘Beat-the-Goalie’ event, competitions, and a Fairtrade tuck shop.
The pictures by Wishaw Press photographer Jim Donnelly certainly show all the youngsters having a good time making the world a fairer place.
