THE pupils in Old Rayne School enjoyed an African Drumming Workshop provided by Inverurie Academy music teacher, Linda Moggach, whose child attends Old Rayne Primary School.

Head Teacher Fiona Eaton said: “It involved the whole school and every child was given their own drum to participate. They all thoroughly enjoyed it.

“The reason for the workshop was that we have been looking at products that are Fair Trade from around the world. Africa has many Fair Trade products. It has been a great opportunity and a great experience for the children and I would like to thank Linda very much.

“We’re coming to the end of Fairtrade Fortnight now and the children have experienced a wide variety of events that promote Fair Trade.”

Amongst the events put on by the school were baking with Fair Trade products, a community Fair Trade cafe with Fair Trade Stall a and a T-shirt challenge.

Ms Eaton continued: The children designed a T-shirt that promoted Fair Trade - they designed it, made it and then showed it off on a catwalk, and there was a Fair Trade prize for the best one.”

Fair Trade Fortnight ended with a Fair Trade disco.
