Greetings from Teach A Man To Fish!
Registration for the 2012 School Enterprise Challenge continues to increase, with over 300 schools from 48 countries worldwide already signed up. Thank you and welcome to all those who have registered already – we can’t wait to see what enterprises you will create in your schools!
Some of the countries from which we have had the first schools registered for this year’s competition this week include Burkina Faso (Ecole Primaire Publique de Googho and Zongo School), Papua New Guinea (Small Scale Mining Training Centre) and Thailand (Chak kham Khanathon). It is great to see these countries represented in the School Enterprise Challenge, and hopefully we will see more schools from these countries and others taking part.
There was also a strong week for registrations from Uganda, and we would like to welcome Springs Alive Community School, Bishop’s Senior School Mukono, Living Hope Child Dev’t Centre & Nyumbu Primary School. Good luck to all of these schools in the Ugandan country competition this year.
Having sent out the first set of educational materials last week, which including a section on social media, we are delighted to see the first school blogs being created. In particular we would like to highlight the blog from students at High school Peyo K. Yavorov in Bulgaria Their have called their enterprise Kids Club “Anne Frank -Tweety”, and you can follow the latest news from Peyo K. Yavorov on their blog here:-http://wp.me/p2vuLx-1x. They plan to create an enterprise which will provide children’s entertainment, and they are already in the process of preparing advertising flyers, brochures and business cards!

There was interesting ideas also from the students at Phoenix School in Georgia, who hope to set up a decorating business this year in their school; and DREAM Memorial Academy who intend to set up a resource centre, stationery centre, and a cafeteria. We wish them every success in their school enterprises.
We will continue to post updates on Facebook and Twitter throughout the competition, so be sure to follow us to keep informed about how other schools are progressing in their school enterprises:
