We are very proud to be a Fairtrade Achiever School! Pupils learn how to support Fairtrade through buying Fairtrade products and spreading the Fairtrade message, in addition they learn how Fairtrade organisations impact the lives of others all over the world. Members of School Council act as ‘Fairtrade leaders’ and plan our Fairtrade activities.
The Stourbridge Fairtrade Steering group supports the School throughout the year. Pupils learn more about Fairtrade through school assemblies, special units of work and whole school activities – particularly during the annual Fairtrade fortnight. This year St James's is helping lead an art exhibition project - art work form local schools and community group will be on display in Stourbridge Town Centre during Fairtrade fortnight. The theme is Fairtrade Cocoa.
At this year's Christmas Fair, School Council members ran a Fairtrade game. The aim was to share Fairtrade information with stall visitors, promote the Fairtrade logo and it's value and the Fairtrade hamper prize advertised some of the scrumptious Fairtrade treats available to buy.
