The Xport team was excited to be invited to Pajuluoma School today, to meet with the Year 5 pupils on their Entrepreneur Day. With the year 5 pupils organising the businesses, and the customers (using play money) coming from years 1 and 2, plus the older children from the Day Care next door.

The young entrepreneurs had been visited by BSTR Advertising Agency earlier this week, so we were greeted by posters encouraging the customers to spend their ‘euros’. The different businesses included Beauty Salons, a Cinema, a Trampoline and several fairground-style activities, many of which involved throwing things at the older pupils 🙂

The Entrepreneur Day seemed to be a big success with the older pupils taking their businesses very seriously, and the younger ones having fun spending their money. Big thanks to Kai Loikkanen at Pajuluoma School for inviting us along, we’re already looking forward to next year!
