Students in Saxon House, the 14-19 department at The Foreland School in Broadstairs, have been taking part in a range of mini-enterprise initiatives in a work and learning programme.

Projects so far this year have included running a Christmas café, where students brushed up on their food and drink preparation and money handling skills whilst manning the till and serving customers as waiters and waitresses.

Other successful projects have included running an Easter fair and helping the Friends of Foreland School by running a stall at the annual Christmas fete.

Students sold a range of products designed and made in their design technology, outdoor learning and horticulture lessons such as cards, calendars, tree decorations, hanging baskets and home-made cakes and chocolates.

The students have risen to the challenge and are now practising their skills ready for the next mini-enterprise project.
