Dragon’s Den

7th May 2019

A huge thank you to our local business people who came to take on the role of the dragons in our dragon’s den for our mini enterprise project. 


All groups delivered a sales pitch that they had prepared to explain their business idea.

Our 6 groups and their ideas were:

Fruit Mash Up (fruit kebabs and homemade lemonade)

Welly Wishes (up cycled wellies for flower pots)

Bags of Bags (customised/ personalised shopping bags)

Dream Team (dream catchers)

Candle Corp (candles and decorated jars of everyday items - sweets, cotton balls etc)

Creative Creations (cupcakes and personalised key rings)


The dragon’s couldn’t decide which one idea they liked best and so suggested that we make two- the wellies and jars.

These two projects support our aims as eco schools and benefit the environment as well as being an exciting creative activity that we are all excited to be involved in.

We are keen to collect as many wellies and glass jars as possible to help us with our project.


Thanks again to Gemma Overend (Gemma’s Cakes)
