NHS enterprise project delivers ‘a real sense of pride and achievement’
LANGLEY: Year 6 pupils at Langley Heritage Primary have taken part in an NHSthemed enterprise project, creating and selling small trinkets to raise money for the health service.
The students made £1,000 in three days from the sales of keyrings, stress balls, cushions and similar items.
They have made more than £1,200 thus far, with orders still coming in.
Ordinarily the pupils would take part in this project in the summer term after their SATS.
"It has been a very strange end to their primary school lives, and this made it especially important that they were still able to take part in an enterprise project,” said Paul Hambling, the Year 6 co-lead.
Children researched what products they could make and how they could make them NHS themed, including the use of the famous NHS rainbow.
They then pitched the ideas to all of the Year 6 teachers in a Dragons’ Den -style presentation.
“By making the products NHS themed and raising money for such a great and relevant cause, they have felt a real sense of pride and achievement in what they have done,” said Mr Hambling.
