Pontypool Tesco teams up with Penygarn Community Primary School for Torfaen's Primary Schools Enterprise Week

Businesses  and schools from across Torfaen are working  together as part of  the borough’s second primary schools Enterprise Week which takes place between Monday 16th and Friday 20th July 2018 in Pontypool Indoor Market. Participating  schools will each  be  given a slot  to sell their products to the public.

Pontypool Tesco have teamed up with   Penygarn Community Primary  School, Pontypool  to work together.  Pupils from Year 5 at the school  will be  creating, marketing and selling a product that they are currently in the process of developing.  Jonathan Webb, a teacher at the school said this product will be a “must have’ for every shopper in the town.”

In addition to a £50 donation to the school for the project, Tesco Pontypool  have already welcomed   pupils  from  the school for  the launch of the partnership and a tour of the store. 

Gaynor Phillips of Tesco Pontypool said “As a leading supermarket chain  and a business that is committed to supporting local communities, we’re delighted to be supporting the Torfaen Enterprise Week initiative again this year and to help  young people  in understanding   what   skills  are involved with running a business. 

More visits are planned to the store in the coming weeks  for the pupils . At their next visit they will discover how we make and sell bakery products. I am also looking forward to providing ongoing support and help for the children as they prepare for Enterprise Week in July. It’s a very exciting time.”
