SOCIAL ENTERPRISE


Last year a small group of seven S3 pupils who are part of SpeyCraft Social Enterprise Group visited the primaries accompanied by their teacher Catherine Irving and Jim Morris, Education Support Officer - Enterprise, Coaching & Mentoring.  The Speyside Group had recently been granted money from the Moray Young Citizen Award and offered £100 to the primary group that came up with the best business plan that met social enterprise criteria.  Primary groups submitted their plans and £100 has been awarded to AberlourPrimary Schoolwhose idea was to set up a social enterprise that sells recycled school uniforms, clothes and shoes.  Money from this will be used to provide a sociable afternoon for the over 60’s in the local area.  The Speyside group were so impressed by other ideas that they are also contributing £50 each to the plans put forward by RothesPrimary Schooland Tomintoul Primary.
