Year 9 Busi­ness Enterprise

Business Of EnterpriseOn Fri­day 5th July, a group of six Year 9 stu­dents trav­elled to Lon­don for the Busi­ness of Enter­prise finals. It was held in the city at the Natwest headquarters.

They com­peted against final­ists from other Kent schools, pre­sent­ing their ideas to a judg­ing panel.

Their idea was for a Clean Green Machine, that would be used to clean up our beaches using a sand fil­tra­tion sys­tem. They were ques­tioned about their prod­uct in detail by the judges and had to argue why their idea would be a success.

They were con­fi­dent, knowl­edge­able and had spent time research­ing and financ­ing their idea. They were amaz­ing and won the ‘Best Writ­ten Pre­sen­ta­tion’ award, despite bril­liant com­pe­ti­tion from mostly older Year 10 pupils.
