Students from our Year 9 Enterprise Company ‘Simply Seasonal’ have taken part in two major events during the past month. On Wednesday 28th February they spent the day at Derby INTU Centre as part of the South Derbyshire Young Enterprise Programme Trade Fair. They set up a stall in the main concourse, selling Bird Boxes to the public. They did extremely well and sold all their stock by 4pm in the afternoon and took sales of £124.00. Three of the students also took part in a presentation in front of a panel of Business people and were complimented for their success.
On Thursday 15th March the company took part in the South Derbyshire Young Enterprise Showcase Final at Derby University. The students ran a stall in the Atrium area of the University, took part in interviews with Business people and did a presentation about their business to an audience of 150 guests in the evening. They were the youngest group of students taking part and they received a plaque and framed certificate for showing the best Team work among six other competing schools.
