Youngsters at Castle Acre Primary school enjoyed a taste of business as part of the Young Enterprise scheme. Five teams of pupils created companies, all of who were sponsored by the school, and started off with a budget of £10.

After deciding on their business, they sold products and services to parents at the school.

A total of £174 was raised and lead teacher Karen Shrimpton said: “The children thought it was absolutely fantastic, and it brought home to them exactly why they learn what they do at school.”

Young Enterprise is a charity that empowers young people to harness their personal and business skills. They make the connection between school and the world of work, enabling young people to develop the knowledge and attitudes they need to succeed in a number of key areas.
