PRINCES TRUST

Any pupils who are submitting work for the Prince’s Trust final deadline must hand in their completed units – Personal Development and/or Career Planning and Work Experience by the end of registration today. You have each been submitted in last Friday’s (8 June) portal meaning that your work will be selected to be marked and needs to be sent to London by next Tuesday (19 June) the latest. Before your work can be sent off it needs to be marked by me and then changes need to be made. Therefore, this week I am available Tuesday and Wednesday lunch times and Tuesday – Friday after school to work through any units. If you do not hand these units in completed with changes by next Tuesday you will fail the course which is a shame as you have passed everything to date!

DAY 5: Kerching!

What’s the likelihood that you have old, unwanted things still lying about the house, doing nothing but taking up space?   Could be old computer games, items of clothing you don’t wear anymore, magazines and comics, toys from when you were much younger, a forgotten skateboard – just about anything.  Think about how much money you could earn by selling them.  Ask parents/carers for help with selling them online or at a car boot sale, etc.  You could be sitting on a tidy sum!

DAY 4: DON’T GIVE IT UP, JUST CUT BACK!

We all spend money on things we don’t really need like personal treats.  You don’t have to give them up but you could save money by cutting back a little.  For example, if you regularly buy crisps, a drink or chocolate, try buying one less (each week/day) or buy a smaller/cheaper alternative.  Spending just 50p per school day on something is actually costing you almost £100 per school year!  Add the money you would have spent to your savings.
