SANDRA JOSEPH from ST. LUCIA
A farmer from St. Lucia, a small island in the Caribbean visited the school on Tuesday, February 26th. We had been chosen to receive a visit due to our success in achieving the Platinum status under the Eco Schools scheme.
Sandra Joseph a fair trade banana grower gave the children an interesting and informative insight into banana production in her country. She used a slide show to show the children the steps in the process from field to supermarket.
7She also took part in a question and answer session as the pupils were fascinated to hear about life in St.Lucia. Some parents and friends were also in attendance.
It was a very interesting session with some Year 6 pupils sharing powerpoint presentations and information on Fair Trade with those present.
