Mini Kingsbury Apprentices raise money for charity
Kingsbury primary school kids learn business skills at winter market
ENTERPRISING primary school kids set-up stall and turned a profit as they traded with each other at their winter market.
Alan Sugar would have been proud as the children, at Kingsbury Green Primary School, in Old Kenton Lane, Kingsbury, bought raw materials with a fixed budget before turning them into finished products ready for sale.
And in the true spirit of the season proceeds from the venture went to Children in Crisis, the school’s chosen charity that provides education to vulnerable children.
Danni Moszoro, Year 5 teacher at Kingsbury Green, said: “It was absolutely fantastic. The kids really enjoyed themselves. We raised �768.30 and its still coming in. The generosity of the kids was just amazing.”
