Melody Hossaini, star of BBC One’s ‘The Apprentice’ series seven, returned to Stanley Drapkin Primary School in Steeple Bumpstead to see how the young social entrepreneurs were progressing.
The school held a social enterprise event on Friday (September 26) with youngsters selling cakes and smoothies among other things to raise cash for good causes.
Melody, who was in the business TV show until week ten, was The Apprentice’s first social enterprise entrepreneur and passed her passion onto the students several months ago before returning for to see their ideas in action.
“This is all about connection education to the community and we are trying to support the students learning that it’s good to develop life skills but imagine if they can also make a difference in their community,” she said.
“We are so pleased that Stanley Drapkin is the national pioneer of Primary Revolution which will now be going nationwide, so it’s really exciting and I’ve been beyond impressed with the students.”
