As part of an enterprise project, students at The Beacon Centre were given the opportunity to sell items at a stall in South Shields Market.

In preparation for this students worked very hard in school to make some fantastic sellable items.


Our secondary students used their photography skills to take photos, which they then printed, mounted and put into frames. They collected rocks from local beaches and then painted them with a variety of designs to be used as paper weights.  Colourful pictures and word-art were painted. Our primary students also made peppermint creams.


In addition to making all of the items, the students  wrapped them up in cellophane, produced posters, made price labels and presented everything on the stall.


The market stall was a huge success selling all of the items that were made.


Well done to all of the staff and students who worked very hard to make this event possible.


We would also like to say a big thank you to Flowers of Enchantment in Boldon Lane for their generous donation of cellophane.
