A Fairtrade event was held at Chatburn Primary School as part of Fairtrade Fortnight.

Entitled "Snack Attack" - it involved the parents and staff baking and donating healthy tray bakes bursting with fruit, oats, nuts, seeds and Fairtrade ingredients.

The children were also encouraged to try a huge variety of fresh Fairtrade fruits and they watched a very thought provoking short film about the making of Fairtrade footballs in Pakistan.

The event was organised by the children who attend the school's Fairtrade group and Mrs Hall.
