En­tre­pre­neur­ial pupils pit ideas against each other in pop-up shop chal­lenge

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

TEAMS of young en­trepreneurs are set­ting up a pop-up shop as part of a money-mak­ing chal­lenge.

The pupils from Ash Grove Academy have been chal­lenged to turn the most profit from a £20 in­vest­ment and have been busily mak­ing ex­cit­ing prod­ucts to sell at the stall.

Heather Jack­son, head­teacher, said: “All the gifts are hand­made so I am hop­ing they will be very pop­u­lar.

“The class that makes the most money on the day gets to keep the prof­its to buy board games for wet playtimes or to put to­wards a school trip. The rest of the money raised by the other classes goes back into school funds.

“We are very grate­ful to the Grosvenor Cen­tre by sup­port­ing the school in this way.”

The stu­dents will be at Grosvenor Shop­ping Cen­tre on Wed­nes­day, July 15 and Thurs­day, July 16, selling items such as herb pots and loom band balls, tie-dye T-shirts and bed­ding, plus bis­cuits and sweets.

Ed Kennedy, who man­ages the cen­tre, said: “I am very im­pressed by the qual­ity of the work and I know that our shop­pers will be very keen to buy these gifts.”
