A GROUP of young entrepreneurs have from Waingroves Primary School have set up their own company to sell pictures from their photography classes.
The six business leaders, aged nine and ten, founded Five Fabulous Photos with a £50 loan from their headteacher. Using images they took of the school. They then bought frames, produced a catalogue and launched an advertising campaign, which included a catalogue and a display.
The photographs were taken from unusual angles and the children experimented by putting different coloured filters on the camera. Copies were sold to school mates and parents and the company proved a resounding success – making over £100. The big-hearted philanthropists bought two cameras for the reception year children with the profits.
Oliver Brown, Lucas Wesson, Jasmine Curzon, Ellie Baker, Morgan Sullivan and Jasmine Roberts assigned themselves jobs such as marketing research and finance, under the supervision of teacher Lisa White. Headteacher Amarjeet Challand said: “If another group wants to pick up the £50 then we will probably run with them. The children did this in their spare time and did a fabulous job.”
