On Sunday 7th June, pupils from Abernyte Primary took part in the Carse Children’s Market at Glendoick Garden Centre as part of their Big Weekend. This was the culmination of a term-long Enterprise Project.
Lucy (P5) reports:
“We sold cards and pictures with picture frames. Lots of people bought cards. Lots of people ordered cards and picture frames.”
Anna (P2) reports:
“I went to Glendoick Garden Centre. There was a hanging basket demonstration, face painting bouncy castle and a raffle. I was selling pictures and cards.
Joshua (P7) reports:
“First we took pictures when a person came to help us take pictures at our neighbour Barry’s. At his garden we took wild life pictures for fun.
Mrs Cox came and told us about the Big Weekend. At the Big Weekend this is where the schools around the Carse make their own products and sell them for charity or for school funds. As a school we decided to make frames, cards, notelets and triple frames using the photographs we took.
We started straight away and by accident we bought the larger cards than we wanted and it was a happy mistake. Then we had different jobs like stock control, badge maker and people who fold the cards. After that we kept on producing more frames and more cards until we went to the Children’s Market. At the Children’s Market we got to sell our frames, cards and notelets that we made in school. There were many other schools and a BBQ and face painting. It was really fun and we made a huge profit!”
