Chicken and egg idea is a business winner for Penzance pupils

Comments (0)

Pupils from St Mary’s RC Primary School in Penzance have been busy designing products in time for the school Mothering Sunday Spring Fair on March 28.

A group from Year 6 took part in the first ever Junior Enterprise Challenge Day at the school organised by Cornwall Learning Education Business Partnership.

Supported by NatWest, Premier Inn, Cornwall College STEM and student ambassadors from Truro Penwith College the pupils formed into companies for the day to develop their business ideas.

Ideas ranged from games to Easter egg baskets and jewellery.

Together they produced drawings and models of their products as well as many leaflets, posters and even radio adverts to promote their products.

The winning group, The Business and Co, received prizes for their idea which was a chicken containing mini eggs which they can sell at the school fair.

Year Six teacher Margaret Stellon said: ““All our children enjoyed the day enormously – it was a wonderful chance for them to work in collaboration with local businesspeople and to learn how to turn their initial ideas into the finished product.

“They found it very inspirational and I’m sure we have some budding entrepreneurs on our hands.”
