The last week of the spring term saw the culmination of this term’s work for our Enterprise Club and the Young Enterprise 10X Challenge. The students (from Years 5 -9) spent the first half of the term researching and planning their mini-enterprises. The week before half term saw them being issued with their £10 loan capital to buy their resources. Then the real fun began…
The girls have been trading their goods on a Monday and Thursday lunchtime since half term at the Pop-up Enterprise Market at the end of the Humanities corridor. Products have ranged from stickers, stationery, hand-painted wall plaques and well-being stones, scrunchies, jewellery and key rings. Lots of the products were handmade showing just how creative our students are!
We are pleased to say that everyone paid back their loan capital this week with everyone making a profit (some more considerable than others!). One group had picked a charity ‘Action Aid’ to support by donating a share of their revenue for every keyring sold.
We thank the girls for all their commitment and hard work, and it has been a pleasure to see their plans and money-making schemes come to fruition.
