During the past year Mrs Garlick has worked with a team of teachers to bring a trading kiosk to Alfriston to support the Enterprise curriculum. This week all her hard work has paid off as the kiosk opened for the first time to sell healthy snacks during the morning break.
Every break time pupils are now able to purchase fresh fruits, oat snacks and cheese rolls to eat as a mid-morning snack. This gives them the opportunity to practise their communication and money-handling skills as well as to develop good healthy eating habits.
They will be served by other pupils who are marketing, making and selling products through cross-curricular courses aimed at developing their business and enterprise skills as well as their functional skills in English, maths and ICT.
In the future we hope to develop the range of products on sale, extend our opening hours and expand our client base. Christmas is likely to be a time of high activity!
It is important that we have adult support to ensure the success of the enterprise and the safety of our pupils. Many teachers and support assistants are involved but if any parents or friends would like to get involved, we would be pleased to hear from you so that you can be included in rotas over the coming weeks. Please contact Mrs Garlick for further details.
