[02 Dec 2015]

On Thursday 19th November, 30 Year 9 Business Students’ took part in GEW Secondary 2015 Enterprise at The Guildhall and competed against 16 other teams.  Students had the opportunity to meet celebrities such as Jive Bunnies Andy Pickles and The Apprentice’s Andy Corbally who shared their inspiring life experience and entrepreneurial journeys with the students. A careers fair was also present and students had the opportunity to network and speak to other people from industries as well as students form other schools including our very own Sirius’ North team!

Many challenges were set and competition was fierce, Sirius West’s students had to dig deep in to their entrepreneurial pockets. The final challenge set by the Sangwin Company to create a new innovative learning unit for classrooms. Many Teams did well and ideas were fantastic.
