Business Enterprise Day - We’re in Business


S4 Business Management and Administration pupils recently took part in a one day event to develop their numeracy and enterprise skills. The “We’re in Business” project was run with the help of Linda Bardelli from the Royal Bank of Scotland who gave pupils the opportunity to make relevant links to the world of work.


Pupils developed their team working skills and each team member contributed by having a specific role eg, finance officer, publicity manager or creative advisor.


David Whitton, MSP, who came along to observe the activities, was very impressed by the team work and determination of all pupils.


Each team had to use their creative skills to respond to a design brief and deliver a business proposal which involved clear costings and financial planning. Team members gained confidence from delivering a presentation to the judges with the winning team


The presentations were judged by the Royal Bank of Scotland who provided prizes for the winning team.
