Clever pupils make a tenner go even further

Students set up a mini cafe which sold home-made hot chocolate, biscuits and treats.

Lincoln school pupils took part in the UK’s first ever enterprise relay.

On each leg of the Young Enterprise Tenner Relay, children are challenged to use a £10 note and turn it into more cash.

Pupils from The Priory Academy on Cross O’Cliff Hill took part in the challenge on Wednesday, February 12.

The relay marks the launch of this year’s Tenner Challenge, which includes more than 250,000 school pupils.

Priory Academy Year 9 students organised a team, appointed a business manager and produced business plans for their stalls, setting up a mini cafe which sold home-made hot chocolate, biscuits and treats. Profits were given to their favourite charity.

Angela Morley, a teacher at The Priory Academy said: “Enterprise education develops a wide range of key skills. Business enterprise also makes use of literacy and numeracy skills as well as taking aspects of a variety of other subjects as law, economics and accounting.

“We hope that our own students go on to be the next Richard Branson!”
