NHS en­ter­prise project de­liv­ers ‘a real sense of pride and achieve­ment’

Windsor & Eton Express - - News -

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.
