Serving Fairtrade cakes at the soup bowl event on 9th March 2017
After yesterday’s Fairtrade baking marathon at Haute Capelles Primary School, Year 6 pupils offered the cakes to customers at the soup bowl event in the church hall at lunchtime today. The cakes went down very well (with a cup of Fairtrade tea or coffee!) and the pupils enjoyed telling everyone about the different recipes and the Fairtrade ingredients in each one. Thanks again to the staff and pupils at Hautes Capelles for supporting Fairtrade and for the organisers of the soup bowl for welcoming the Year 6 pupils and all their cakes!
Fairtrade fun at Haute Capelles Primary School!
Two members of the Guernsey Fairtrade steering group, Amanda Evans and Ann Battye, visited Hautes Capelles Primary school on the afternoon of 8th March 2017 to help out with some Fairtrade activities. All the pupils in Year 6 were involved in cooking muffins (either Fairtrade banana, honey & oats, Fairtrade chocolate & orange or Fairtrade white chocolate and blueberries). Others pupils made a Fairtrade fridge cake and some also made Fairtrade crispy rice nests. When they weren’t cooking, the pupils were busy playing the Fairtrade ‘Breaks and Ladders’ game and creating Fairtrade recipes and artwork. The cakes were being made for the soup bowl event on 9th March 2017. A big thank-you to all the staff and pupils at Hautes Capelles for their support and also to the Channel Islands co-op, who provided us with vouchers to buy all the cooking ingredients. We all had a great afternoon!
