Year 8 Enterprise Challenge
On 10 and 11 May, Year 8 students took part in the CRHS Enterprise Challenge.
Day One involved input from Junior Achievement and local business volunteers who guided the small groups of students through a fictional situation where they planned and promoted a pop concert on the Isle of Man.
Day Two focused on a more real world scenario with 3 local businesses – the One World Centre, Beach Buddies and Adventurous Experiences. The students had to work in groups to create a promotional package for the businesses which included a radio advert, a press release and a launch party. The local businesses then listened to the presentations and selected their favourite.
The project aimed to develop the students’ relationship skills and also introduce them to the world of work through focused and challenging activities. The organisations involved were very impressed with the students’ enthusiasm and fantastic ideas.
