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