YOUNG ENTERPRISE CHALLENGE Click for photos

The Year 6s and 7s embraced their inner entrepreneurs this week, developing a business model to design, produce, market and sell a healthy snack to their school classmates. The school was buzzing all week as the House teams went into overdrive to market their wares, including chocolate-covered bananas and strawberries, maple lollies, berry and kiwi frozen snacks. I’ve just heard from Mrs Reid that the teams raised over HK$7,000 as well as learning a huge amount about product development, marketing and sales!

 

HOUSE CHARITY FOOD DRIVE – CAERNARFON Click here for photos

Our families made us proud again this week supporting Caernarfon’s Food Drive for their local charity Feeding Hong Kong. The House targeted 10 boxes of dried food products, but this morning the Year 7s packed up 22 boxes, all of which will be delivered to families in need across Hong Kong.
