PUPILS at The Deepings School exercised their creative talents after taking part in a project which tested their business acumen.

The work was part of Global Entrepreneurship Week which involved a project called Skills for Life/Enterprise event delivered by Bright Futures which helps pupils understand what employers want and commercial awareness.

The year group was divided into 46 groups of five and spent the day completing three challenges: designing and building a rollercoaster ride with limited materials, negotiating buying letters to form many words and creating a 2012 Olympics supporters’ hat.
