As part of the S2 Enterprise course, 6 classes have worked very hard over the past year to set up and run a business, making and selling the following products – Special Occasion Cards, Gift Bags, Gift Tags and Water Bottles.
The pupils have had stalls at various locations during the course of the year and have sold their products at Parents’ Evenings and at Aker Solutions (our business link). I am delighted to say that we have managed to raise £400 (a fantastic amount of money) and this money has recently been donated to two local charities which the pupils chose – “CLAN” and “Make a Wish Foundation”. The pupils have managed to raise such a large sum of money due to the hard work, dedication and determination they have shown during this course.
Over the course of the year, I have seen the pupils develop some excellent skills such as the importance of team work, good communication, time management and presentation skills. They have shown initiative, creativity and responsibility through their involvement in this enterprise project.
