Students from the Young Entrepreneurs programme presented their latest developments to the rest of secondary in this week’s assembly. The teams are ‘Eats and Treats’ and ‘Novagem’ in Year 9 followed by ‘Cook Cookie’ and ‘Bubble Blooms’ in Year 10. The teams have been developing their products since October with just one hour per week during ECA time. Eats and Treats have sourced a supplier, conducted market research and made sales whilst Novagem have spent considerable time developing an exciting new board game. Cook Cookie have focussed on their branding whilst Bubble Blooms have been developing their new drinks to get the flavours just right.
Business Studies Teacher Mr Lunn said that despite the small amount of time available to Young Entrepreneurs, students have made very good progress and have been demonstrating a range of skills applicable in the real world. The programme will continue for the rest of term 3 and finish with a final presentation where a team will be selected as the winner of the programme.
