As part of the S2 Enterprise course, 6 classes (comprising of 110 pupils) have been working 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.
Teams have had stalls at various locations during the course of the year and have sold their products at Parents’ Evenings, the Oscar Night and at Aker Solutions (one of our business partners). I am delighted to say that we have managed to raise £500 (a fantastic amount of money) and this money has recently been donated to two Charities which the pupils have chosen, these are “CLAN” and “The Make a Wish Foundation”. Learners have managed to raise such a large sum of money due to the hard work and determination they have shown during this course.
The S2 Enterprise project has also been shortlisted for the “Enterprising Young People’s Award” category at the Children and Young People’s Services Awards Ceremony which is being held at the Beach Ballroom in Aberdeen on Tuesday 30 September. We wish them all the best for this.
