Enterprise Day

Paper Bridge

Last week Tasha and I spent the day at Kibworth High School for the Year 9 Enterprise Day. The day was part of the Careers and Enterprise week, helping students to develop business skills. The students had to form a company, assign business roles and then develop a product to sell and market. It was a competitive (Dragons’ Den style) business environment and the students had a limited budget, time and resources to complete the challenges…

As a local business we are always delighted to be supporting schools within the community. We were really impressed with the students throughout the day and we awarded prizes for an Enterprising student in each classroom and for the winning teams in the Duck Production Challenge.
