Primary pupils show their business skills
Lord Sugar look out! Businessminded youngsters have raised more than £400 through an enterprise week at their primary school.
Pupils from Phoenix Primary School in Kennington were given £10 per class to see if they could turn a profit. The bright sparks came up with a number of schemes to make cash, including selling food and drinks at their sports day, creating a range of craft items, and their own film screening.
They used their profits to pay for a range of treats for each class, from a bouncy castle for their end-of-year party, to a trip to a bowling alley.
Head teacher Frances Nation said: “It’s been amazing. It totally inspired them, and a few classes even decided to pool their resources.
“We’ve decided we’re going to do it every year now.”
