Year 8 Enterprise Day

Categories: Curriculum

On Thursday last week, year 8 students participated in the inaugural year 8 enterprise day. The aim of the day was to develop skills such as teamwork, communication and leadership.
Students worked in small groups to generate ideas, come up with marketing material to promote their roller coaster and make a sales presentation on the theme of designing a new roller coaster for a UK based theme park. There were some fantastic ideas, including film based rides with VR headsets, through to those looking at combating wider issues of global warming with their rides using recycled materials demonstrating the impact single use plastic is having on the environment.
The standard of the presentations was very high and it was lovely to see students present with such confidence. Congratulations to the winning team, ‘team intellect’ which comprised Jessica Brown, Jenson Morter, Alice Butt, Ben Mercury, Lucy Eagle and Adam Levett.
