Fair trade Conference for Schools

Posted on 13th February 2015 in In the Community, News

Fair and funky
Valli Opticians are big fans of fair trade and are  delighted to be a ‘Conference Champions’ sponsor of the  FairAndFunky  Fair trade Conference for Schools. This event brings together Primary  Schools from across Kirklees to celebrate and learn about Fair trade  through creative arts and education workshops for students and teachers.

This is the first conference of its kind in Kirklees to combine arts and  Fair trade.

Each student will take part in a variety of art based workshops learning about Fair trade and ethical produce.

The conference will also deliver Continuing Professional Development  for the teachers in a fair trade  workshop with presentations from “fairandfunky”, The Fair Trade  Foundation, and all the ‘Conference Champions’.  The aim of these  workshops is to develop an understanding of Fair trade and how it can be  taught within a busy classroom timetable.
