Year 9 Community Enterprise Day at Whitley

On Thursday 27th November, Year 9 took part in a one day programme (Year 9 Enterprise Day) with the focus on creating a viable, costed project that would benefit the local Community. The day was entertainingly hosted by Mark Bolton, representing the charity, ‘Positive about Young People’ and seven local Mentors who work in the Community representing a range of diverse occupations.
The day led up to awarding the winning group with the opportunity to put into practice their Community project, along with a bursary of around £200, to make their idea a reality.
Students learned valuable lessons in business acumen and product development, and we congratulate the winning team, consisting of Julia, Holly, Chloe, Jodie and Molly.
Their idea of helping the local homeless community by raising funds via a money raising activites day, was a worthy winner! Good luck with the new business venture!
