Primary Schools Programme

The WOWC's Fair Trade work at primary level focuses on sustained engagement with pupils who receive initial information about Fair Trade from their teachers, followed up with a workshop with WOWC staff, and finally a meeting with a visiting Fairtrade producer.  This year pupils were lucky to be able to meet, talk and ask questions of Maria Genoa, a Fairtrade farmer from the Domincan Republic.  This work is supported by Irish Aid and Fairtrade Ireland.


The WOWC's Winterval Programme takes place during Waterford's Winterval Festival.  Pupils visit Centre staff as part of their time at the Festival.  This past year we worked with pupils around the issue of food waste during the holiday season.



The Centre also provides support for schools working toward their Green Flags and students involved in action projects for Transition Year and CSPE.
