Crickhowell High School is delighted to have been awarded the Fairtrade Achiever Award which is the top accolade for being a Fairtrade 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. Students can also learn a range of skills, from teamwork and co-operation to persuasive writing to running a stall or tuck shop.
Teaching about Fairtrade fits different curriculum areas, especially Geography, Citizenship and PSHE
In getting the Fairtrade Achiever Award the school has fully embedded Fairtrade into their daily life and work to raise awareness of Fairtrade in their local community.
