An Enterprising Year

During assembly on Monday, Year 9 Enterprise students presented Oak Tree Animal Charity with a cheque for £100 that they had raised during the year.  The fundraising was supported by an initial start-up payment from Brampton and Longtown Rotary, and through selling items they had designed, made and sold in school and at a trade stand. During the assembly the students were also awarded a certificate from Young Enterprise for completion of a two hour workshop on Business Finance earlier this year.

In addition to fundraising the students had raised awareness of the cost of looking after pets by creating interactive games for pupils to use during a visit to Brampton Primary School. The students are returning to Brampton Primary School this term to support pupils running an Enterprise Week.

Thank you to Barry Ridley, Branch Manager of the Cumberland Building Society in Brampton, who attended Enterprise lessons once a fortnight during the year in his role of Business Adviser to support the  students with their project.
