Well done to Team Green students for their wonderful baking! $190 were raised and will go towards a fund to buy more solar panels for our college.
Exciting start of the year!
Fair Trade is a Trade in which fair prices are paid to producers in developing countries, thus reducing poverty. When we buy Fair Trade chocolate, sugar, bananas or cocoa, we support farmers and promote good farming practices. It reduces poverty and helps the environment. And fair trade products taste better too!
Mount Aspiring College is a Fair Trade school since 2016. This means we learn about fair trade and promote it through out the school, the canteen uses fair trade sugar and cocoa, and we organise events with fair trade products.
We are having a fair trade bake sale tomorrow at lunchtime in the quad. Come with a few dollars: it is delicious and it helps the farmers. Yum!
All the benefits go to a fund to buy more solar panels for our college.
WIN for the taste-buds and the mood!
WIN for the farmers who produce it and the planet!
WIN for our Solar Panels funds!

Delicious baking from our team yesterday! We raised $222.60 in just one lunchtime! Using fair trade ingredients, our baking benefits the farmers, their families and communities.
We keep this money on an account to buy more solar panels for our college!
Now that MAC is a fair trade school, we organise regular fair trade events, to keep raising awareness, support fair trade farmers and their communities and enjoy yummy safe food.
There will be: Ice chocolate, Honey comb pizza, Cookies, Muffins, Banana Cake, Brownies and Fairy Bread, all containing at least one fair trade ingredient. Mmmmm…

The school will continue to support and promote Fair Trade because this scheme has the potential to lift millions of people out of poverty, improving their ability to work, eat, earn a decent wage and provide education for their children. Buying fair trade products is one small step that everyone can take to improve the lives of others, making the world a fairer place.
