A visit to The Good Life

During the Summer Term pupils in Year 6 are looking at different professions. They are visiting some workplaces and will also have visits from professionals who will talk to them about their career.

This week they popped around the corner to meet Shelley Brown and her team at the recently opened shop, The Good Life, to find out about running a business and to learn more about The Good Life.

The business focuses on reducing waste. It sells produce without packaging. You can refill your plastic bottles, fill up your tubs and jars with dried goods and even buy lovely fresh, organic, locally grown fruit and vegetables!

The children were particularly impressed by the array of sweets on offer in 'Dolly's Sweet Corner' as well as the healthy lunchbox snacks.

Headteacher Norah Johnson commented "Post entrance exams, we like to organise lots of trips for Year 6 as part of our enrichment programme. This year we are focusing on the world of work by looking at various professions. Our visit to The Good Life was a real eye opener for our pupils. Many of them commented on how different it was from a supermarket and they were impressed with the concept as a simple way to do their bit to help the environment. They appreciated the uniqueness of the business and how that helps to contribute to its success. We are very grateful to Shelley and her team for allowing us to visit - I think many of us will be popping in again soon!".
