A fair-trade feast for your class

30th April 2004 at 01:00
Jan MacDonald, deputy head at Moore primary school in Warrington, Cheshire, wins this week's bumper box of Dubble fair trade chocolate bars for her Year 6 class. At the end of last term they pulled off three winning performances of Oliver!, this year's key stage 2 musical production.

"Nothing too amazing there," she writes, "but...." She goes on to explain that many of the cast were laid low by coughs, colds and, even worse, flu and then a stomach bug. She finally caught a bug herself over Easter and realised how brave and dedicated her pupils had been when feeling awful.

They'd rallied round, stood in and covered for each other and the show went on. Well done.
