Bankhead’s tea-tastic adventure
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.
