Powerful Pound Challenge
Spending the money!
On Tuesday 21st June 2016, most of the school went to M&D’s in Hamilton, Scotland and we loved it. We spent the first hour in Amazonia, then the next four and a half hours in the theme park. We were split into 4 groups. There were rides like Tsunami, Tornado, The pirates Treasure , The GIANT FERRIS WHEEL, Dodgems, Boat Bumper cars, Mad Mouse, Mine Train and The Magic Condor. It was fair to say that we all loved it!
Next we went bowling .Every person got to play one whole game and ice cream was served during that time.
The last stop of the day was to Frankie & Benny’s. Everyone had a great meal there and we travelled home to Crawford for 7.30pm after a wonderful day out spending the money the pupils earned during the project. Well done to everyone!!
The pupils of Crawford Primary were given a challenge for the month of March. Each pupil was given a pound coin and they had to make it expand by coming up with a business idea. Some of them sold cupcakes, some of them did raffles and some people washed cars . There was a great variety of ventures going on.Everybody tried their very best to make their pound grow. At the end of the challenge the pupils had to report back to the others on how they made their pound grow and what their final total was. Some people made a powerpoint presentation, some made posters and some just talked. All together we made………£916.00!!! Everyone is amazed by the total especially the staff. A huge thank you to the parents and carers for supporting the children in this challenge and thank you to everyone who contributed in any way. The pupils will now decide how the money is to be spent.
