Faritrade lunchtime treats

PUPILS at St Peter’s Primary School in Portishead have launched a Fair Trade tuck shop.

The idea came from year five students who were given the task of coming up with an idea to support the school’s wider community projects.

They then passed it on to teaching assistant Tamsyn Evans who helps younger pupils run the Tuesday lunchtime stall.

Mrs Evans said: “The tuck shop promotes Fair Trade, which is something all the children learn about, and any proceeds from the tuck shop are put into other community projects at the school like buying gardening materials for the gardening group or wood for the knitting group.
