Pupils have a taste of the restaurant trade.

PUPILS at a Warwickshire school got a taste of what it is like to run a restaurant when they were visited by business experts.

Professionals from the Warwickshire Education Business Partnership visited Round Oak School, in Pound Lane, Lillington, to show teenagers the day to day running of a business.

Year 11 teacher Peter Mezulis oversaw the event, which involved about 20 youngsters aged 14 to 16.

He said: "It was a brilliant day. One of the comments made by the people from the business side was that they do this in mainstream schools and sixth forms and the children would rather be doing anything else.

"But here they get really involved and take it seriously."

Organiser Donna Jenkins, of the Education Business Partnership, said: "The exercise proved very popular with the students.

"They benefited from a fun and informative day while utilising key skills."
