On Friday afternoon, OVPA held its first ever Enterprise Fair and what a HUGE SUCCESS it was.
It all began when two groups from each class visited our Dragons Den. They met our ‘Dragons’ (Mr Vallier and Mrs Maclaine) and pitched for £10.00 for the things they would need to make their product. After a grilling from the dragons the winning product was chosen and it was all systems go.
This week the children have been involved in designing and making their products, thinking about best ways to advertise their product, looking at cost and profit and creating a stall to sell from. The children had been buzzing all week from the excitement of it all.
The Fair itself was a wonderful event. Most stalls sold out and every class raised a good amount of profit. Each class will decide together how to spend their earnings.
A huge congratulations to all our budding entrepreneurs, aged 5 – 11, we just hope they remember us when they’ve made their first million!
Thank you to our generous families and fantasfor all their support. This has been an invaluable learning process for the children and we’re now looking forward to another one in the near future.
