Forty teams from four of the Island’s secondary schools are currently competing against each other, as well as schools in Guernsey, in the Channel Islands Student Business Challenge.

On Saturday 27 February the Jersey teams from Grainville, Haute Vallée, JCG and Victoria College will be setting up their own stalls in the market for a day of direct selling to the public – and many of the teams have decided to donate their day’s takings to charity.

The annual student challenge began in January and ends in March. This year almost 150 young Islanders are taking part in teams ranging from two to eight members. Each team received £100 to launch and run their own businesses for three months. The products to be sold in the market include snacks and drinks, cakes and sweet treats, jewellery, candles and key rings.

Central Market tenant chairman Bill Davies said: ‘This is a fantastic opportunity for students to gain valuable working experience in a competitive environment.’
