Year 10 Business students compete to raise money for charity
The last week of the Autumn Term was Enterprise Week when GCSE Business students had the opportunity to organise and run a small business in school, competing for the Mini-Enterprise Trophy. The winning team is the one which raises the most money for a charity of their own choice.
Students from Year 10 set up tuck shops in the foyer of the school and sold sweets and treats, some of which they had made and packaged themselves.
The Monday group raised £79.02 for Teens Unite, the Thursday group raised £108.01 in aid of The Alzheimer's Society, and the Mini-Enterprise Trophy winners were the Wednesday group, who raised £118.90 for Teens Unite. The event was a great success and the shops almost sold out - raising a grand total of £305.93.
