BUDDING entrepreneurs at St Mary of the Angels Catholic Primary School showcased their business know-how at the Christmas fair last week.
The Year 6 pupils were given a special task to test their new skills while also raising money for their chosen charity.
The children worked together in small groups to develop and create products to sell at the fair, held at the Little Sutton school last Friday.
To start their businesses, each group was given a £5 loan, which then had to be repaid at the end of the sale.
The aim of the enterprise was to see which ‘company’ made the biggest profit, by selling handmade products using recycled items.
Each member of the company had their own role, such as business manager or finance director.
Connexions provided the initial loans as part of the Time 4 A Change programme.
A school spokesman said: “Pupils thoroughly enjoyed the project and made more than £130 for Cafod – a wonderful achievement.”
