Mount Stewart Federation's Young Entrepreneurs Lead by Example with Successful Fundraising Initiatives

Mount Stewart Federation's Young Entrepreneurs Lead by Example with Successful Fundraising Initiatives


The Mount Stewart Federation is abuzz with pride and excitement as our young entrepreneurs from Year 5 have shown the world that determination, creativity, and a heart for giving back can make a substantial difference. Through their innovative groups, 'Origami Masters' and 'Tuckshop Mania,' these students have embarked on a mission to support various charitable organisations, turning their entrepreneurial ventures into a force for good.


Origami Masters: Crafting Change with Every Fold

The 'Origami Masters,' a group of talented Year 5 students including Shayan, Max, Rohan, Reyan, Viyan, Rian, Ani, and Surina, took to paper folding with a purpose, raising an impressive £128. Their initiative, which involved creating and selling intricate origami pieces, was more than an artistic endeavour—it was a call to action to support those in need. The proceeds have been generously split, with £64 going to St. Luke's Hospice and another £64 to Children with Cancer, in a touching tribute to Rhea, a beloved member of our community whose legacy continues to inspire.


Tuckshop Mania: Snacking for a Cause

Not to be outdone, 'Tuckshop Mania' saw Year 5 boys Saiyan, Alexis, Eddie, and Yanis turn a simple idea into an impactful fundraising event. By managing a tuck shop sale, they invested £53.25 of their own money into goods, selling them for a profit of £101.85. Their personal contributions boosted the total raised to an admirable £155.10. The dedication and business acumen displayed by these students highlight their entrepreneurial spirit and commitment to giving back to the community meaningfully.


A Unified Effort for Global and Local Impact

The combined efforts of the 'Origami Masters' and 'Tuckshop Mania' have culminated in a significant contribution to several charities, including Sufra, UNICEF, St. Luke's Hospice, and Children with Cancer: Running for Rhea. This initiative reflects the Federation's ethos of fostering a sense of responsibility, compassion, and community service among its students.


Celebrating Success and Looking Forward

The Mount Stewart Federation extends its warm gratitude to all students, staff, and community members who supported these initiatives. The success of the 'Origami Masters' and 'Tuckshop Mania' is a testament to what can be achieved when young minds are empowered to lead, innovate, and contribute to their communities.

As we celebrate these achievements, we are reminded of the powerful impact of collective efforts and the importance of nurturing the next generation of leaders, thinkers, and philanthropists. We look forward to continuing this tradition of excellence and community service inspired by the remarkable efforts of our Year 5 students.

A massive thank you to everyone involved, and stay tuned for more inspiring stories from the Mount Stewart Federation as we continue to make a difference, one project at a time.
