Enterprise Day Marketing Videos and Posters, by Mrs Harris

Date: 1st Feb 2024 @ 9:46pm

The children had a wonderful time during the preparation for Enterprise Day 2024!

Their entrepreneurial skills were certainly put to the test and they all did so well.

Modern life means our young people need to be resilient, innovative and not afraid to experiment - all important for entrepreneurs.  

We are using Enterprise Day to develop a range of skills in our pupils. These skills include:- team work, financial literacy, organising and planning, using initiative, negotiation, taking risks, creativity and innovation.

A key part of enterprise is the making of goods, followed by the marketing and selling of these goods. 

Take a look at our presentation / marketing videos and see what you like the look of 😊
