Enterprise Week 2017

 

The whole JPC community came together again for another fantastic enterprise week. The week began with students launching their own mini enterprise using a £5 loan from school. Each form had to come up with the idea and work as a team with the aim of making as much money as possible for this year’s chosen charity Ronald McDonald House at Arrowe Park. The next activity involved students learning new CPR skills and practicing these on our dummies. The first day concluded with a talk from the local job centre on the growth employment sectors in the Wirral area.
 
Tuesday saw our year 11 students enjoy a visit to Liverpool University, finding out all about student life and the option available to them once they leave school. Other students took part in a surviving the elements session, developing problem solving and teamwork skills to build fire and shelter. The day also looked at financial literacy and a talk from careers connect on transition to college or employment.
 
On Wednesday students continued fundraising for a fiver as well as completing a Lego challenge which tested their communication and resilience skills.  We also were fortunate to have an interesting talk about students in our link school in Kenya delivered by John Burrows from Global Schools Network.
 
 
The week continued with a visit from Megan Owen who is lead fundraiser at Ronald MacDonald House. She gave us a talk on the charity and the support it provides. Students then took part in an apprentice style challenge designing and creating their own smoothies. Year 10 students visited the head office of O2. They were given a guided tour of the building and completed workshops on CV writing and interview techniques.
 
Friday was the culmination of the week’s work. Students and staff made their final efforts to ensure all aspects of their business were ready for the final market place on Friday afternoon. We invited judges from local business to a working lunch (catered for and served by students) who were incredibly impressed by the efforts of our students.
 
Overall the week has been a huge success. With over £600 raised for a local charity as well as the whole school community pulling together to learn new skills, develop self-confidence and have some fun. Well done to all the staff and students involved.
