Pri­mary pupils show their busi­ness skills

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Young Entrepreneurs -

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.”
