Making Money project pays off for Sidmouth pupils

Pupils at St Nicholas Junior School, Woolbrook, wanted to double their money for the school’s Send a Cow charity, so they made items to sell at a class fete.

PUPILS in teacher Jason Stephens’ class at Woolbrook’s St Nicholas Junior School, wanted to double their money for the school’s charity.

So they chose the topic of Making Money for their class project, to see if they could double the �100 they had raised for the Send a Cow charity, by putting on a class fete before half term.

The fete took place last Thursday for two hours at the school hall and pupils are pictured here making items to sell on the different stalls.

As well as an auction to sell two pieces of signed merchandise – an Exeter Chiefs rugby ball and a Exeter City poster, both signed by the whole team – there was a coffee shop, with full service by pupils, a shoeshine, home-made cake stall, make-up stand, sweet shop “not to mention all of the children’s home-made bags and their design and technology projects,” said Mr Stephens.
