At Blessed Dominic Catholic school we are proud to be a Fairtrade school. The school is committed to supporting, using and promoting Fairtrade wherever possible. We believe that Fairtrade can make a difference to the lives of young people throughout the world by improving living and working conditions for the people who grow the things we buy.

Our committee works hard to promote the values of the Fairtrade Foundation, which in turn helps us to live out our school motto ‘Love, Learn and Believe’.

Being active citizens in our faith, by making a Fairtrade choice means that we are actively supporting the needs of others.

If you buy a Fairtrade product you know that the producer of that product has been paid fairly for the hard work they have put into it. Buying Fairtrade helps vulnerable communities to help themselves, this means that they can use the money to invest in their local communities and make sure that producers have decent working and living conditions.  By supporting Fairtrade we are showing witness to our faith and living out one of Jesus’ key messages, ‘love your neighbour as you love yourself,’ helping to make the world a better place to live in for everyone.

Our Fairtrade committee meets half termly to plan events and make sure that the Fairtrade message is spread throughout our school and wider community.
