Pupils go bananas at first Plymouth school to win Fairtrade Award
VICTORIA Road Primary School has become the first school in Plymouth to achieve a Fairtrade Award.
Pupils celebrated their school's achievement by dressing up in banana costumes when the school was presented with the award by the Fairtrade Foundation.
The independent non-profit organisation is committed to tackling poverty and injustice through trade, and awards the 'Fair Trade School' title after recognising commitment to Fairtrade products and education.
The Fairtrade Foundation award acknowledges schools that are committed to the foundation, by means of 'using fairtrade products as far as possible, learning about how global trade works and why Fairtrade is important and taking action for Fairtrade in the school and the wider community'.
