Cumbria's Rising Stars 2014

Cumbria's Rising Stars

St Patrick's Catholic Primary School, Workington

St Patrick's Catholic Primary School, Workington

Last week, Year 5 and 6 presented their business ideas to our chair of governors and teachers from the secondary school. They all entered the 'Dragon's Den' confidently and lots of entrepreneurial flair was displayed, but it was decided that we could only give the £50 to one group and 'Cutie Cakes' stood out.

The children are on a steep learning curve: planning their spending, advertising their products and evaluating and adapting their business daily. Their 'Cutie Easter Egg Raffle' is running every breaktime with daily prizes and they spend their evenings busily making cakes to sell to parents after school. The only complaint is that they are so delicious the teachers' diets have gone out of the window!

The children have decided that they need a big event to maximise their profits so that's what they're planning for next week.

Here are some pictures of the 'Dragon's Den' and of the first customer...
