Business Tycoon Peter Jones Finances President Kennedy School's 'Baby Dragons'

Congratulations to Ryan Woods, Kenya Loakes, Khushi Shah, Casey Ryan, Ursala Din, Ryan Garside, Travis Dhillon, Joshua Holden, Ebony Ouwehand, Chloe Ford, Ryan Smith and Tobias Wright who have successfully applied for a business loan from the entrepreneur Peter Jones as part of the Tycoon in Schools National competition. If they are successful, these students may have an opportunity to meet Peter Jones in London.

With the £100 business loan secured, our budding entrepreneurs hope to raise is £120 profit once they have paid back the initial business loan. This could be used to pay for a needy child to enjoy a week of activities like rock climbing and swimming.

Year 8 students are planning to run a company called  “Marvellous Marmalade”, selling marmalade to raise money for CHICKS (Country Holidays for Inner City Kids).  One Year 8 President Kennedy School Business Tycoon commented,  “Some of us went to CHICKS camp during the summer. We rode horses, went to the beach, went to a theme park, made lots of friends and had an amazing time. We gained confidence and tried new things” T

Our other fledgling company “Herbilicious” will be set up by year 7 students. They may be new to the school, but have one thing in common; they are all passionate about growing healthy plants and a healthy profit. They will be growing plants, herbs (basil, parsley, dill) and spring bulbs using recycled plastic bottles collected by staff and students and planted in the school gardens. They will be selling the plants to parents and teachers at the school Christmas Fayre and from taking orders via email from the school portal.  All the profit they make, will put back into the business so they can grow and sell more plants for the Summer Fayre next year.

A Year 7 President Kennedy School Business Tycoon said, “We will also be able to invite more year 7 children to come and join the Gardening Club so it becomes even bigger. We intend to make a 100 % return on the initial investment business loan, and the profit we make will be ploughed back into the gardening club.” Their company was lent £100 for their business's making £200 business loan in total for both businesses from Peter Jones.
