ACTUAL ENTERPRISE EDUCATION PROGRAMME

This term has been another busy one for pupils involved with our Actual Enterprise Education programme. Lots of projects have taken place, including a project with Ridgeway and Wirral Met College and Prenton Primary School.

One of our major events was the organisation and planning of the schools Memorabilia Celebrations. Seven year 8 pupils, along with support from staff, helped plan, set-up for, and run our events on 2nd and 3rd July when nearly 600 guests attended over the two days events.

Some year 7 pupils helped with these celebrations with a ‘buy a brick for a £1’, where we are offering people the opportunity to buy a brick from our current school site, after it is demolished.

Y10 ENTERPRISE TEAMS

Y11 pupils in year 10 were involved with two Enterprise projects. They split into two business groups. One ran a fair-trade tuck shop for two weeks at break-time, buying products, setting up the stall, selling the goods and advertising the project. The other created our schools lovely photographic memorabilia booklet. Some of these booklets are still available for people to buy for £5. An additional CD is available with the book for £1, featuring many more photographs of the school. These types of Enterprise projects were a first for the school, and we hope to do similar projects with another year group next year.

To order any of the things above please contact the school office, or come into our sports centre over the summer and request them at reception.
