What is the School Roadshow?
One aspect of the charity that has proven to be a great success is the School Roadshow. This is where we go into schools across the UK and Ireland to educate children about the idea and vision of the charity, social justice, the importance of fairtrade and to demonstrate the daily hardship many people and children face in extreme poverty.
This directly links to schools curriculum in Fairtrade, Global Citizenship, The world Around Us and PDMU (Personal Development Mutual Understanding).
The follow up
We then come back to the school on a different day and set up a stall to sell the schoolbags to the children after they have learned all about the charity and how their purchase of a high quality fairtrade bag can change a life.
What are you waiting for?
We know that our School Roadshow program not only works to educate children about importance of social issues but it also leaves a lasting impression on them that they will remember.
Take a look below at just some of the wonderful feedback we have received about our School Roadshow program from Principles and Teachers.
So what are you waiting for? If you know any school that would be interested in taking part in the program please get in touch today!
What are people saying?
St. Macartan’s Primary School is delighted to support the amazing work done by Ian & Ten Foundations. Our children & parents understand the life-changing difference buying one of their bags can make to a child in the Philippines. The bags are of superior quality - they’re still going strong after 4 years! Ten Foundations education packs & promotional videos help develop an awareness of social justice in our pupils. God bless you Ian and all for the outstanding work you do!
Ian Campbell has been a visitor at our school, (St Malachy’s, Newry) on a number of occasions. The children call Ian “The Bag Man.” They love to hear about the people Ian helps in the Philippines.
Ian came to our school and talked with the children about Ten Foundations, what it does and how they can help others thousands of miles away, make a better life for themselves. Ian delivers his message with sincerity, hope and compassion and caters to children of all ages. Having a Ten Foundations school visit informs and educates young people as well as sending a clear and very important message.
Carrick Primary School, Lurgan joined up with Ten Foundations this year for the first time. We were delighted when Ian agreed to come to talk to our P6 classes as we had been studying Fairtrade as part of our WAU and thought this might link in. We were really inspired to see everything Ian has set up and how he helps the families in the Philippines. We were also amazed to see how our children embraced the idea of promoting and selling the Ten Foundations schoolbags to help Ian. It became part of our Literacy too as it helped the children develop their understanding of Persuasion. We look forward to next year and how we can help Ian and Ten Foundations further.
