Growing a Fiver – Our Hustling Entrepreneurs in Action!

Forest Prepsters are knocking the Virgin Money ‘Make £5 Grow’ schools’ scheme out of the park!

The scheme aims to ignite the creative spark in children and build the next generation of budding entrepreneurs while supporting in key areas of the national curriculum, specifically around Maths, English and PSHE. As ever, Forest pupils have applied themselves with aplomb.

Mr Lander and Mr Clements spent their Sunday on a rather cold Wanstead High Street supervising the various ‘shifts’ of Y5 and Y6 pupils as they sold their wares to the general public.

The target was to beat the £530 in sales they generated at Lloyd Park back in the summer. We are delighted to say that our hustling entrepreneurs comprehensively smashed through this, achieving revenue for the day of £636.50 by 3pm!

Next term we’ll be aiming for the big 700!
