St Catherine’s Youth Enterprise Challenge
Ms Fearon, Mr Chalmers, Mr Leadbitter and Mr Croft had the pleasure of watching presentations from six teams, two from Year 10 and four from Year 12. They pitched their business plans in the hope of being chosen to represent our school in the Youth Enterprise Challenge.
Any of the groups could have been selected as all had worked very hard and had some great ideas. Eventually, after lengthy deliberation they chose a Year 12 team, “Wonderwomen” comprising Lolita Uzupyte, Kotryna Blankaite, Vimasha Perera, Noor Javed, Maham Javaid and Maysuree Paterson. The team recently attended the launch of the event at Christ’s Hospital where they met Natwest representatives, who will be working with them over the course of the project, and other schools taking part.
A JustGiving page has been set up which will be updated regularly providing information about their various activities. The address is https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Hazelwick-School and the team would welcome any donations!
The team also has various events planned, including bake sales, a movie night, a non-uniform day and a fun run. Details of their fundraising events will be given to students in school and sent to parents/carers via InTouch.
We hope that the school community will get behind the team in their efforts to raise as much money as they can over the next few weeks for this very important and amazing local charity.
Mr Croft and Mrs Bending
