Every Summer term, the children of both St Helena’s and our sister school, St Barnabas, take part in an Enterprise project. Over a period of four weeks, the children used items such as old candles, jars, clay and fabric paints, to create coasters, framed prints, suncatchers and painted fabric bags to sell at their Enterprise Market.
Each school has it’s own market and this year St Helena’s had theirs on the afternoon of Friday 14th June. Each class had their own stall on which to display the items they had made but there was also: a second hand book stall: a second hand toy stall: a stall selling loom band items some of the girls had made: and a plant stall. We were very lucky with the weather and parents, grand parents and friends turned out in force to support the children with the PTFA serving refreshments.
Once all the expenses had been accounted for, the children had made a staggering £550 profit, some of which will be donated to charity and the children will decide what to spend the remainder of the money on.
