Youngsters in the market

Youngsters from the P7 class at St Peter’s Primary School, Galashiels, are gearing up to launch their business ideas at the annual St Peter’s spring fayre on Saturday.

As part of the curriculum for excellence, P7s fulfil an enterprise project during the summer term. The class has been split into two teams – the Blackboard Band-its and the Basketball-oons – working as entrepreneurs with various jobs from design to production.

The Blackboard Bandits are working on coloured chalkboards in various sizes in pink, black and blue – which are to be customised; also corded faux leather wristbands. Meanwhile, the Basketball-oons have an original take on papier-mache moneyboxes, a cookery book and basketball nets. Both are hoping for record profits.
