Over the last few weeks, Mrs Gillespie has been working incredibly hard with the Primary 6 pupils on their WildHearts Micro-Tyco enterprise project and, together with other schools around the country, they are experiencing the power of entrepreneurship as a catalyst for social and economic change.
So far, Mrs Gillespie’s Primary 6 class have raised an amazing £250 through a variety of activities and business ideas. By raising this amount, they are providing a micro-finance loan to others around the developing world, helping people to work their own way out of poverty with dignity.
Not only are they helping others to become more financially independent, but our Primary 6 pupils have also gained knowledge and received entrepreneurial training which has allowed them to demonstrate their amazing leadership skills over the last few weeks. Their work is supporting our school’s journey towards the Level 2 Rights Respecting Award. A big thank you to Mrs Gillespie and all the Primary 6 pupils . . Well done!
