Pop-up cafe ran by pupils hailed a success

Leamington Editorial 15th Jun, 2019   0

EAGER students in Warwick had their first taste of the working world when they prepared a pop-up cafe.

Sixth formers at Round Oak School served up tasty treats when they were joined by Marks & Spencer staff during a careers event.

Alongside a series of workshops, the pop up cafe offered a practical lesson in customer service.

The guests also gave students a hand brushing up their CVs followed by a mock job interview.

The event was so successful, the pop-up cafe was taken on the road to Gaydon village hall where residents enjoyed homemade cake and chutneys.

Organiser Sam Raybould said: “Creating sustainable links between Round Oak and local businesses is a strong focus for our school. Not only does it give our students exposure to essential work experience it also allows local industries the opportunity to understand what our pupils can bring to their workplace. We sincerely hope this will become a regular event.”
