Hull Ready Hub is organisation letting students plan and create a website for the business, and then putting the website into use.
The Hull Ready Hub consists of staff and pupils from Malet Lambert School, Spring Cottage, Gillshill, Cavendish, Neasden, Mersey and Victoria Dock.
This allows the pupils of these primary and secondary schools to explore their creative side, before moving into secondary school, so they can gain valuable skills and experience.
Malet Lambert is helping the pupils which want to come to the school to get to know the school more than they otherwise would have.
They are expanding their entrepreneur skills, and also adding to their business skills.
The students have been also tasked with the job to create a newsletter.
Jack, who is one of the students at Malet Lambert helping the primary school pupils with the task of creating the website says, “I love helping people, and whilst they are here they can hopefully learn more about the school”.
He also said that “Hopefully if the year sixes get used to the school, they will not feel nervous about coming here for the transition week next week”.
One of the year six students who were at the Hull Ready Hub meeting said “The best experience was when we could plan and start to design the website”.
Fundraising is also required to support the business, for example Malet Lambert are having a book swap, were the students will pay 50p to swap a book with someone else.
The money will then feedback into the business to pay for the transport which is required to get to the venue of the meeting.
Also a member of staff Mersey expressed “It is brilliant that the pupils can explore the school, they can also get to know the staff and get to know the building”
