Saturday afternoon was spent at the trade fayre in Stone where the Young Enterprise competition was held. There were seven teams participating with a variety of different products. The standard was especially high this year and the competition was fierce! I heard a report on BRMB today about the value of Young Enterprise and how it encourages sixth formers to start their own businesses in the future. In fact a YE participant from seven years ago has started his own business and is supplying his products to the Jamaican team at the forthcoming Olympics! This success is testament to the success of the YE programme!
Consequently I am delighted to have been asked to go on the Staffordshire YE Board and attend my first meeting next Monday the 12th March! This is a real accolade for our school, especially our sixth form!
There were many members of the B for B breakfast meeting present at the trade fayre too! Dave from DK Design, Steve from Lilac Films, Jonathan from Baswitch Consultancy, Stuart the Regional Director, Anna, Steve, Emily… The list goes on – all testament to how altruistic and committed these business people are to developing and nurturing the next generation!
Back to Tempo! The girls were out in force! A fantastic turnout all in their matching hoodie tops! The stand looked great and the girls felt their interview with the judges went well!
Despite the weather the St Dominic’s girls were impressive and consequently came second in this event!
What a successful day!!
