St Joseph's Primary School - Chunky Monkey

Aims: After hearing a campaign on the radio which was trying to tackle loneliness, we knew we wanted to help.

We decided to engage with elderly people at Oran Street Day Care Centre through reviving some forgotten crafts.
What is it: Our teacher taught us how to sew and knit. We made sock monkeys from old, clean socks and a range of hand knitted products. Our goal was to ask the elderly people to help us develop these skills and in turn we would teach them some new craft ideas. We then explored different ways to make money. We produced Christmas calendars and DVDs of our schools show. The profits were used to buy materials for activities at the care centre.

Impact: Working with our new ‘Pensioner Pals’ has been an amazing experience and we have all learned so much about ourselves as well as each other and we will continue to build on our new relationships. Whilst learning new skills, students have made friendships with the elderly people at the care centre. Chunky Monkey improves health and well-being for everyone involved in the Social Enterprise.

Carmunnock Primary School

School Meal App

Aims: We wanted to reduce the amount of food waste produced by our school, by doing this we will also reduce the amount of harmful methane and carbon dioxide emissions going into the environment. Each year our school produces approximately 1440 bin bags of food waste, which means that we waste 6 bin bags of food a day and we’re just a small school!

What: To stop this we have come up with an idea of a school meal app so pupils can choose what they would like for lunch in advance and the catering staff can then plan better to ensure that there is less waste.

Impact: As we will be charging a small fee to use the app we will raise money to repay our start-up cost and then for school funds. This is a sustainable business with a long term plan. This planning process has impacted positively on the group, developing our understanding of economics, profit and loss. This gives us an opportunity to develop skills for life, learning and work, operating in a real life context.

However, it will also remain permanently set up in room 4 to meet needs should people choose to ‘pop in’ to browse and buy. All items for sale are donated.
