Fruit to Suit at Garsmart

This half term has seen the re-launch of Garswood Primary's very own shop 'Garsmart'. A company called 'Fruit to Suit' were enlisted to help us update the shop. It will be managed and run by the children - they have many roles from Directors to Sales and Marketing Managers. Below are some pictures from when Sonia from Fruit to Suit came in to visit- the children were in charge of choosing which products to sell and recieved full training on how to manage the business.

The children have taken Garsmart from plans to reality.

Snacks are available from Garsmart every break time for junior children.

Having reviewed purchasing - the shop team have now added mango whirls and humzingers to their stock!

The shop has re-opened for business and is thriving! The children are ordering stock weekly and can barely keep up with demand. It's super to see the new shop team so committed and dedicated to their important roles.

We proudly celebrated at the start of this year with Lexie receiving an award from Fruit to Suit for her wonderful, polite telephone manner when ordering goods. Well done Lexie! 

We also welcomed Fruit to Suit to school to train our new cohort of business enterprise students. Though the taste testing proved to be most popular. The children have already risen to their important roles and the shop has a booming trade!
