Students stage tea party

Samworth Church Academy students have hosted a tea party for the community as part of an enterprise project that challenged them to benefit a group or organisation.

They also took part in a £10 challenge. Students were given £10 to set up a stall with a product they had made from raw materials and challenged to make a profit.

Heidi Loydall (13) said: “We are selling jams that we made ourselves. We are going to give any profit we make to the Jigsaw charity. We have already sold a lot at my local church and they are selling well today too.”

Teacher Rebecca Leeney said the tea party was a success for the guests and the students. “The students did a great job of organising and running stalls at the tea party. They interacted with the guests well and impressed me with their maturity and enterprising attitudes.”

Kath Rushby, a guest, said: “It’s been fabulous. Year 8 students have worked hard and the food was magnificent.”

Another guest, Mr Arnold Taylor, said: “I have enjoyed the food. The students have done very well. It’s better than Harrods.”
