Feast of football

4th February 2005 at 00:00
Year 10 geography pupils at Neville Lovett community school in Fareham, Hampshire, have taken the world poverty message to heart.While covering the topic of trade, aid and development, they have taken it upon themselves to sign up for the Make Poverty History campaign. Their geography teacher, Jane McMaster, says pupils have been genuinely moved by the situation in Africa, and are committed to making a difference; most have visited the local Oxfam shop to buy the white armbands supporting the campaign, and wear them around the school with pride. At the pupil council's insistence, the school cafeteria also sells fair trade products.

Does your class deserve a fair trade treat? If so, email friday@tes.co. uk to tell us why, and they could receive a box of Dubble bars and a Fair Deal football. The chocolate comes from a Ghanaian collective and the football is hand-stitched by adults in Pakistan, helping to end the widespread abuse of child labour. Mark your message Dubblefootball offer.
