West Lavington pupils show entrepreneurial skills in aid of orphanage in Nepal
7:00pm Monday 2nd June 2014 in News
Youngsters at Dauntsey’s Academy Primary School, West Lavington, will be demonstrating their entrepreneurial skills.
The school is running an enterprise week to give the pupils a real-life application to their learning.
All 178 pupils will be loaned £2 each by the school and, in groups of up to ten, they will decide how to invest the money, culminating in an enterprise market on Friday at the school.
Headteacher Robert Lakin said: “At this enterprise market the children will have the opportunity to put into practice their entrepreneur skills, running stalls and fundraising initiatives.
"All money raised will support The Nestling Trust raising funds for the building of an orphanage in Nepal.”
