We are hoping to raise the profile of the Fairtrade movement by showing one of two documentaries to a Junior Cycle Class. The programmes we are considering showing are...

The Fair Trade

The inaugural meeting of the Global Citizenship Group took place on 12/03/2019. Wiktoria was nominated as chairperson and Rachel volunteered to be secretary. Amongst the issues addressed were our application for the Global Citizenship Passport, the possibilty of promoting Fair Trade, the need for explanitory posters over the recycle bins that the school has recently installed, the research of solutions to the over use of single use plastics and an Ethnic Appreciation Day.

We would like as many teachers as possible to support us in our campaign to reduce the use of single use plastics. Below you can find links to two programmes that will explain to your students the importance of being responsible in this regard:
