Pupils make money

BUSINESS-MINDED youngsters set to work on making some money for a new classroom.

Pupils at Worlebury St Paul’s First School held an enterprise challenge to raise cash for phase two of an expansion project to become a primary school.

The school now takes year four children but will need another classroom and resources for year five in September.

Headteacher Gillian Quick gave �1 to all 147 children and asked them to use the money to raise more.

Their ideas have included cake sales, growing plants from seed to sell, making brooches, knitting rabbits and chicks, using the �1 to enter the Tough Ten Fun Run as a sponsored event, sponsored phonics, washing cars, raffles, guessing the number of sweets and a sponsored scooter ride.
