Fairtrade - FairActive Award
Despite a long period of disruption due to the global pandemic we have had our Fairtrade certification renewed and awarded as a 'FairActive' College which is great news for all members of the St Dominic’s Sixth Form College community. In essence, this means that the Fairtrade organisation for Schools & Colleges recognises the efforts that we have made to be active in the promotion, implementation and awareness of the issues and needs surrounding Fairtrade across the globe.
Over the last three years, we have embarked on a number of activities to support Fairtrade through enrichment classes, posters and promotional materials, quizzes, tutorials, Fairtrade cotton t-Shirt design competitions, Fairtrade Cafe 3D design competitions, Fairtrade hot chocolate, tea and coffee mornings and numerous assemblies. It has been a superb, collective effort and input from so many students, staff, governors and parents and this award is truly well deserved.
We look forward to more engagement with everyone when we embark upon Fairtrade Fortnight and trust very much we will have our certificate renewed once again in 2024.
