This week is Enterprise Week. The aim is to give children a greater appreciation of finances and the link between money and work. Representatives (from Barclays and NatWest), presented their business plan and arranged to borrow money for their business- which will be, to make items to sell at the School Christmas Fair on 9th December.
They learned a real life lesson when the bank managers explained that they would be charged interest on the money loaned.
Subsequently the children visited the School Shop to purchase their goods.
