As the project draws to a close, Year 6’s Global Enterprise Challenge companies are engaged in one final sales drive for the next three weeks. Their goal is simple, to be able to pay back their Dragon’s Den start-up funding and to turn the biggest profit in the class!
As you may be aware, the challenge involves 10 Broadclyst companies as well as numerous companies in our international partner schools. Each team sells different products, from cookies to phone cases. The teams at the stage are working hard to produce eye-catching advertising, keep accurate accounts and to complete a whopping 20-page report on their experience in the challenge that they will present to Mr Bishop and the other dragons.
The teams will be selling their products in the school playground and hall, usually at the end of the school day. If you have the time, please stop to take a look at what they are doing – although they may attempt convince you to part with some change!
The international winners will be decided by three judges from companies that partner with the school and will be announced in a little over a month. The internal competition award will be presented in the Year 6 leavers’ assembly at the end of term. At this stage, the competition is still wide open with several companies neck-and-neck!
