Enterprising students raise thousands for school

Students at West Lodge Primary School in Pinner have boosted school funds by over £3,000.

For the past four years the school has run an Enterprise Challenge which introduces Year 6 children to different elements of running a business.

This year, an Enterprise Day was held in May where Year 6 pupils were introduced to product costing, market research and advertising.

Following this, £1 was given to each participant to set up their own businesses, either working alone or in teams.

Over the next six weeks, the participants generated profit from various ideas, such as selling slushies, icepops, cakes, making jewellery, games, washing cars and much, much more.

The Challenge peaked at the West Lodge Summer Fair at the end of June where our budding entrepreneurs sold their wares.

On Facebook, Enterprise Challenge Co-ordinator, Ruth Alberici said she was delighted at the news.

She commented: “A huge well done to our budding Year 6 entrepreneurs who raised an outstanding £3,211 during the Enterprise Challenge this year!”

The teams who raised the most money were awarded trophies and everyone was given a certificate and medal. All cash raised will be reinvested into the school via PTA funds.
