Greetings Cards at Southern Road Primary School
Event date:  
Southern Road Primary School
From the London Borough of Newham, Southern Road Primary School has been working with Enabling Enterprise since 2012 to develop a set of eight Essential Skills in their students. Over the years, students across the whole school have been developing their Essential Skills through Lesson-Time Projects as well as Challenge Days and Trips to Employers.
Greetings Cards
Learners explored the world of enterprise by setting up and running their own greeting cards company. Over the course of the challenge, students were Working in a Team to manage a production line and sell a new range of greetings cards. In particular, teams had to use their Problem Solving skills to ensure that everyone in their team had contributed to their final design and learners used their imaginations to come up with some really creative and innovative designs for their new greetings cards. As the clock ticked away, teams raced to outdo their competitors, sell the most cards and generate the biggest profit. In order to win over future customers, teams competed to deliver a convincing business pitch, before the final winners were decided.
