The Fairtrade Council

Fairtrade in Holy Rosary 

Holy Rosary Primary School is a Fairtrade School. The Fairtrade Committee is made up of pupil representatives from Primary 4-7 who are elected by their class to represent their class.  The staff representatives are Mrs Carragher, Mrs Moffett and Miss Hyland.

The Fairtrade Committee encourage the school community to purchase Fairtrade products as this ensures that farmers in developing countries are given a fair price for their produce enabling them to provide for their families, make their own decisions, control their futures and live the dignified life everyone deserves.

Fairtrade Fortnight takes place and the end of February and the children will be involved in planning and presenting assemblies, competitions are held throughout the school and activities are completed in class to highlight the importance of Fairtrade for families around the world.  Parents and friends are encouraged through their children to try to purchase a Fairtrade product when doing the weekly shopping.

Our aim in school is to be good global citizens, learning about Fairtrade and the benefits for farmers and producers around the world is an excellent way towards achieving this.


Meet the Pupil Council


Hi, my name is Mollie and I am in Primary 7. I am the chair of the Fairtrade Committee. Along with Mrs Carragher, I ask questions and talk to the other Fairtrade members about targets we must achieve. We must aim for fair pay schemes for farmers around the world who are in need. The only way we can make a good profit is with your help. When we do different events we need your help with fundraising. You can also by products with the Fairtrade icon on them. I hope you all enjoy me being your Fairtrade chair. Thank you.


My name is Angelena.  I am 10 years old and am in Primary 7.  I am the Fairtrade secretary, my job is to take notes in our meetings and sort out events such as the Christmas fair and Fairtrade Fortnight.  I help prepare the agenda for everyone. I have to let everyone know when we will be having our meeting and where we will be having them. Additionally, I have to give out any information regarding assemblies, competitions or events.
