SQUEAKY clean pupils learnt all about business when they visited a Felpham secondary school.

The Year 6 youngsters from Downview Primary School took part in a day of exciting business enterprise and entrepreneurial activities when they called in at Felpham Community College.

The guest students were given the task of making and producing a new range of soap in the Felpham Way school’s science
labs.

The budding entrepreneurs then had to market and package their products in the most creative way in order to entice potential buyers.

Felpham’s business and vocational studies curriculum leader Mr Darbyshire said: “The Year 6 students were fantastic and showed a real flair for making and marketing a new range of soap products.

“They learnt so many vital skills that are needed within the business world and should be extremely proud of the results.”

The event was run in partnership with West Sussex County Council and the college’s business and vocational studies department.

It aimed to teach the youngsters skills such as teamwork, organisation and creativity.

The pupils presented their finished products, which were then judged by a top panel including managers from the Body Shop Erica Moore and David English, and Onra Coffey from the county council.
