BUDDING entrepreneurs at Brookhill Leys Primary School in Eastwood did a car wash and sold hotdogs as part of an enterprise project to teach them how to make a profit.

The children were given £200 and asked to come up with ways of raising money.

They decided to wash cars and sell jewellery and hotdogs at the school last weekend, and they made £250.

Headteacher Jacqui Sainsbury said: “The idea was to give them experience of handling money and thinking how to make a profit using their life skills and literacy and numeracy skills.”

Two other Year 5 and 6 classes have been given the same challenge and one class is thinking about making and selling cakes.

All the money raised will go towards the school to pay for activities and equipment for the children.
