Once again, our year 7’s, 8’s and 9’s are taking part in a business enterprise challenge, whereby a local business or organisation will be assigned to the school and will sponsor and mentor the students during their enterprise challenge. Stollers Furniture World will be sponsoring South Cumbria PRU for the second time.
The idea was created by St Mary’s Hospice to commemorate three decades of end of life care to people in the community, and to hopefully raise funds for the hospice. Schools within the Furness and South Lakes area will compete against each other to raise as much money as they can. The groups will be asked to create a plan outlining how they plan to generate as much money as possible from an initial investment and then the best plan will be put into action.
Money raised from the project will be donated to St Mary’s Hospice, and an amount awarded to the groups who raise the most money in their school and also to the school that raises the most money.
The students will be promoting their items within the store at Stollers Furniture World on Thursday 12th December where they will be selling wish bracelets, Christmas decorations, hot chocolate cones and reindeer food.
We wish them all the very best once again with their challenge!
