Craigfelen Primary School pupils are turning their skills to launching a community cafe business, just over a year after opening their own school-based junior savers club bank.The Graigos cafe will offer a place for people in the community to meet over tea and toast for an hour on a Friday morning.
This is a truly pupil-led project. The response from pupils and parents has been tremendous. We hope it will provide a much needed meeting place to bring the whole community together.
We are delighted at how well the school bank has been managed by the pupils and received by parents and the community. It has encouraged saving, boosted numeracy and sparked an entrepreneurial spirit.
Now the café too will help us equip our pupils with more skills for life linking with our curriculum.
Pupils will be managing the venture and serving as waiting staff, with parents lending a hand with hot food preparation. All those involved have been on food hygiene courses in the run up to the launch.
