After discussions with the Head of Year a group of ten year 11 students embarked on the year book enterprise project with great enthusiasm and a wealth of good ideas.
•They formed a committee to manage the project
•Roles were allocated to committee members by agreement, taking into account the personal strengths of the individual
•A questionnaire to all year 11 pupils was designed and used to research the market for a year book
•Sponsorship was secured from local businesses in return for advertising in the year book
•A fund raising event was held in school, a cake sale
•A photographer was booked to take photographs for the year book
The committee found this project a challenging and a useful experience to include in their applications for college places and employment, but unfortunately the Yearbook wasn't completed in time and did not get produced.
Not all our projects end up as a finished product, but they still produce valuable outcomes for the students involved.
Our enterprise projects are design to challenge and enthuse students require commitment and effort. They are real and help the participants develop soft skills which will help them in the world of work. In many respects the journey is more important than the outcome.
