Pupils from Cundall Manor School are cooking up a taste for enterprise as they launch a pop-up restaurant.
The year 9 pupils are taking on the challenge as part of the school’s business studies course.
The 14 year-olds have been working on organising the annual event which sees nearly 50 parents, friends and family visit the restaurant.
The youngsters develop their own business including the purchasing of the materials, advertising the event and even devising their own menu, cooking and serving the food. The visitors are then asked to pay for the meal as to how much they think it is worth.
Debbie Partington, Head of Business at the school, set them the task. She said: “Our annual pop-up restaurant has regularly proved the highlight for many of our pupils on our business course.”
“The restaurant allows them to take control from the beginning and deliver profits based on how well they perform.”
The pupils received fantastic feedback from the guests who enjoyed a full 3 course meal at the school.
One guest, Chris Jay, said: “The food was very nice and we had a great evening.”
The profits from the event will be used to by the students to arrange a trip away, while any excess cash will be given to a charity of their choice.
