Fairtrade Afternoon 26.02.14


West Cliff's annual Fairtrade Day took place on Wednesday 26th February where children (and their parents) found out lots of information about the benefits of choosing Fairtrade products. There was an assembly in the morning for older pupils, kindly delivered by staff from Sainsbury's, and then a wide range of family activities in the afternoon, including tower building, sundae making, chocolate-bar designing and lots and lots of food tasting! Thank you to everyone who took part.
