Rhyme and reason.

Pupils at a Tyneside school are to show civic dignitaries the benefits of Fairtrade.

Children from St Catherine's RC Primary School, Sandyford, will meet Lord Mayor Coun Diane Packham on June 22 to sing a song specially written about the concept.

The 30 Year Two children have been invited alongside former Lord Mayor John Marshall and representatives from Newcastle Fairtrade Partnership.

Headteacher Michael Ewing said: "The children have been learning about why Fairtrade is so important to everyone, especially those who grow the food we enjoy."

Lord Mayor, Coun Diane Packham, added: "For many years I have supported Fairtrade and as Lord Mayor I am delighted to host this coffee morning which highlights the excellent work happening in Newcastle."
