The 5th Class girls' business ideas included a two-story kennel for dogs, a spray to wash away annoying sand at the beach, a very lightweight school bag,a laptop/ipad combined and a subject book for secondary school (all subjects in one book). These were probably two of the most educational days that the children experienced in school this year!
