CHILDREN at a Wargrave school designed and created Christmas gifts for a business and charity project.
The pupils at Robert Piggott Junior School made Christmas tree decorations, bracelets andÂ scented bags.
TheseÂ will goÂ on sale at a Christmas bazaar at the school tomorrow (Saturday) with the proceeds going to charities chosen by the children.
The project is part of the school’sÂ annualÂ business enterprise scheme in which pupils form a business plan beforeÂ applying to the parents’ association for funding.
Headteacher Sally Ann Akers said: “The children need to have designed their product, worked out the finances, making sure they stick to the budget, and carried out market research before beginning to make and advertise their products. Â
“They will then have the opportunity to set up their stalls and sell their goods at our Christmas bazaar. Â It’s always a very popular project with our pupils.”
The bazaar will take place at the school in School Lane from 1pm to 3.30pm and will also feature a farmers’ market,Â Santa’s grotto,Â a raffle, carol singing, tombola and fairground rides, a barbecue and mulled wine. Visitors are welcome.
