Pupils at Bickley Park School in Bromley have taken their first steps to becoming young entrepreneurs after being given ten pounds each.
As part of the school’s centenary year, each pupil aged seven to 13 has been challenged to set up a profitable small business, either alone or by pooling their investment, with up to three other pupils.
The 'lend us a tenner' initiative challenges the children to unleash their business ideas and acumen over the Easter holiday. Pupils have been given guidance about how to set up a business and the dos and don'ts of acceptable business practice. At the end of the project, any profits made will be divided between two charities that have been nominated by the pupils' school council and the boys themselves.
“Hopefully we will inspire some budding entrepreneurs and raise money for good causes in the process.”
