"I Can Be Enterprising Too' - Enterprise Day 2019

Enterprise Day (2)Monday was Enterprise Day for our Year 9s. The day started with a guest speaker delivering a motivational talk on the theme of ‘I can be enterprising too’. Students learned  about how they can apply themselves through selling products or offering a service whilst still in school. They were also encouraged to use combine their skills with their passion to become entrepreneurs and make a difference in the world once the leave school. Five of our Year 9 students gave a presentation on how famous entrepreneurs used their enterprise skills to make revolutionary changes to the world

Students then worked in teams to complete enterprise quizzes, personality tests and a 'guess the entrepreneur' challenge. They watched a film about how one entrepreneur used his skills to tame the dragons in the Dragon's Den TV series and create the famous Reggae Reggae Sauce. Students then planned and designed their own product, with each student taking on a different role in the team, based on their unique enterprising qualities.

The final session of the day was very enjoyable and saw students applying everything they had learnt about teamwork to carefully plan and build a tower using only some sheets of paper, a pack of straws, some blu tack and a roll of sellotape (pictured).

Enterprise Day (3)

The winners of the tower-building challenge were Emily, Sarah, Karina, Chelsey, Hollie, Ben, Grace C, Grace W, Daniel, Abbie, Jessica, James, Harry, LaShaun, Vienna, Ruby and Krystal, who each received a £10 gift voucher. Other students won other prizes throughout the day for getting the most correct answers in the ‘How Businesses Operate’ quiz.

Well done to all our Year 9s for participating so well in this enjoyable and challenging day.
