Year 2 are taking part in the first Gatwick School (Primary) Young Enterprise week commencing on Monday 11 th June 2018. The aim of the week is for the children to learn about money and gain a deeper understanding of personal finance.
To achieve this it is planned for the children to start with an amount of money at the beginning of the week and achieve a profit through a business venture, (cake sale), by the end of the week. It is hoped a business leader will open the week with a discussion with the children about the importance of finances.
To support this enterprise I would like to ask that between now and the start date children save as many Ip, 2p, 5p and 10p coins as they can to use as our start up fund.
It is planned that the profit will be used to buy something for each class that the children can enjoy and that decision will be achieved democratically as a result of a class vote.
In closing, may I ask that any money raised not be brought into school until the 11 th June 2018.
Thank you for your support.
