Bankhead’s tea-tas­tic ad­ven­ture

Rutherglen Reformer - - Intimations -

Ruther­glen pupils had a tea-tas­tic time this month when they showed off their en­tre­pre­neur­ial skills with a pop-up shop in the town.

P4/5 stu­dents at Bankhead Pri­mary School opened their tea room in Ruther­glen Ex­change af­ter win­ning a school com­pe­ti­tion.

Dubbed the High Street Chal­lenge, the Young En­ter­prise Scot­land ini­tia­tive tasked chil­dren in pri­maries four to seven with gen­er­at­ing ideas for a one-day pop up shop.

Pupils had to con­sider the needs of their com­mu­nity, the strengths and weak­nesses of their busi­ness, start-up costs and po­ten­tial profit. The ideas for a po­ten­tial busi­ness were pre­sented in school and af­ter care­ful con­sid­er­a­tion, the win­ning class was pri­mary 4/5.

The class, along­side their teacher Mrs Michelle Dis­ley, launched ‘Bankhead Teatas­tic’ in Unit 34 of Ruther­glen Ex­change with great en­thu­si­asm.

Each pupil per­formed a role in run­ning the busi­ness, from serv­ing ta­bles to tak­ing or­ders and tak­ing cus­tomers’ pay­ments.

The ven­ture was deemed a mas­sive suc­cess both by the school and the many sat­is­fied cus­tomers who at­tended on the day.
