Five budding Y9 entrepreneurs had 20 minutes to pitch their business idea at a Dragons’ Den competition held at Manchester Airport. 21 other secondary schools were also involved.
The Dragons’ Den Enterprise competition challenges students to develop a Christmas present for family or friends retailing for £5 or less with the Dragons offering to invest £100 of their own cash to kick-start the business.
Amelia Collins, Lola Fischer, Joe Herbert, Georgia Mayer Holt & Lucy Pegg clearly articulated their plan from resourcing raw materials through production to sales, demonstrating that their proposition was viable and profitable.
Their idea is to make and sell Christmas decorations, message boards, cushions and tiered cake stands, all made by hand using local recyclable materials, at the local Treacle Market, the school fair and also at an event at Manchester Airport on 24th November. All profits will support their chosen charity East Cheshire Hospice.
After the pitch, the Dragons took the opportunity to ask questions about the venture. Team Fallibroome expertly handled the probing questions such that the Dragons were suitably impressed and awarded the team the capital of £100 to take their business forward and into the next round.
Dance Students Explore Professional Works with Visiting Dancer from Rambert Dance Company
Students in years 10 , 12 & 13 had a wonderful opportunity to work with a visiting dance artist from Rambert Dance Company in order to get a better understanding of the professional works that are studying for GCSE and A’Level Dance. The students worked really hard throughout the day and produced some lovely choreography, as well as learning key phrases of repertory.
