In order to help our young people to be enterprising and to learn how to put their ideas into action we have suspended the normal school curriculum on Tuesday 8 March and have organised for the Year 10 students to take part in The Ryman National Enterprise Challenge.
Our Enterprise Day will be run by local young entrepreneurs from the Ryman National Enterprise Challenge team. They are very passionate about encouraging young people to use their initiative and develop other essential enterprise skills such as decision making; learning to deal with risk; communication; and team working.
The day will be held in the hall where the students will work in mixed groups. Students will register as per normal with their tutors at morning registration and will be registered in the afternoon. We would like to ask the students to come to school for that day in business dress. They have been told that this means a smart and professional dress code - no jeans or casual wear. If they are not in business dress, they need to come in school uniform.
A winning team of 6 will be representing the school in July at the National Enterprise Challenge finals which have been sponsored by Theo Paphitis and Ryman plc. The students will be presenting their winning enterprising idea to a panel which will include Theo Paphitis. School will organise transport and the selected students will be accompanied by members of staff. If your child is part of the winning team I will be sending a permission letter home with them. The winning team will need to spend time with me on a Thursday afternoon after school to help create a winning presentation.
I am really excited about this opportunity for the students. I know that they might be nervous at first, but they will develop in confidence, make new friends, and will also have a lot of fun.
If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me through e mail firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone at school.
Thank you in advance for your support.
