Pupils profit from fundrais­ing project

East Kilbride News - - INFO..INFO..INFO -

Money-savvy pupils at Moss­neuk Pri­mary saw £5 turn into over £2000 as part of a fundrais­ing project.

They took part in Vir­gin Money’s‘Make £5 Grow’pro­gramme and will use the cash to pur­chase items for each class to en­hance their learn­ing and do­nate to a range of lo­cal char­i­ties, which the chil­dren will se­lect in the new term.

The busi­ness ac­tiv­i­ties which the chil­dren or­gan­ised in­cluded a French café, a Burns Day event, an Easter fayre and a Christ­mas fayre.

The pupils also set up a stall in the Vir­gin Money Glas­gow Lounge where they en­gaged and sold their prod­ucts to cus­tomers.

They also got to see what the day in the life of a Vir­gin Money Lounge host looks like by shad­ow­ing and help­ing the hosts.

Fi­nally, they were able to visit the pizza restau­rant next door and hand make their own lunch.

Craig Con­non, head teacher at Moss­neuk Pri­mary, said:“The chil­dren of Moss­neuk Pri­mary School have thor­oughly en­joyed the ex­pe­ri­ence and have learned many en­tre­pre­neur­ial skills along the way.

“Each class in the school worked with their teacher and cre­atively came up with ideas on what busi­nesses they could de­velop.

“From sell­ing stationery, to bak­ing cakes, a choco­late foun­tain to us­ing their artis­tic skills, each class came up with ex­cel­lent ideas on how they could make their £5 grow and they cer­tainly did.

“A big thanks to Iain and the team at Vir­gin Money for their in­put and sup­port.”
