Alan Sugar better watch out for a group of students who set up a stall making hundreds of pounds for new playground equipment and charity.
Children from Apex Primary School, Argyle Road, Ilford learnt about money and business last week from product development right the way through to advertising.
They set up shop in the Exchange Ilford, High Road, Ilford selling maths equipment and worked on their selling patter from Thursday to Saturday.
Meherun Hamid, headteacher, said: “They loved it and learnt so much like you cannot please everybody and trying different selling tactics on different people.”
The children raised about £350 from selling the maths equipment over the course of three days and will donate some to charity with the rest going on games equipment.
