Three students from Girvan Academy enjoyed a day out learning how candles are made and even created some of their own to sell to parents and teachers.

Shannon-lee McCracken, Alex Copland and Charlene Bennie, fifth year Business Management pupils spent the day at Shearer Candles, the UK’s largest manufacture of lifestyle candles based in Glasgow.

The visit was part of their Working in a Business Enterprise unit in which they have to set up a business. The girls have now decided to make teacup candles and sell them in school as Christmas gifts.
