Greetings from all at Teach A Man To Fish
It has been another very busy week for the School Enterprise Challenge, and we are excited at how the competition is shaping up!
There have been many new entries to the School Enterprise Challenge again in the past week, and we welcome all of the newcomers. We are delighted to see schools who participated last year returning for 2012, such as Droopnath Ramphul State College (Mauritius), Zululu Primary School (Kenya) & GA Maamendhoo School (Maldives). We look forward to seeing how you can develop and expand your school enterprises even further this year!
It is also great to welcome back The Heritage School from India for this year’s competition. Last year, they took the top overall prize in the ‘Planet’ category when they set up a mushroom growing business – called THS Mushroom – as a means of generating a cheap, healthy food source in an ecologically friendly way. We are sure that they will continue to grow and improve, and we are excited to see what the Heritage School can achieve this year!
This week has seen a lot of new entrants from Kenya, which is great to see. We would like to warmly welcome the following Kenyan schools to the School Enterprise Challenge 2012: Thika Technial Training Institute, Our Lady Of Mercy Girls’ Secondary, The Victory Senators High School, Riamajeshi Bright Start Academy and Langata West Primary. Good luck to all!
A big shout out this week also goes to Padiham St Leonard’s school in Burnley, UK. As you may remember, they are setting up a pop-up coffee stall this year to sell ethically sourced Ugandan coffee at Burnley football matches. Their coffee stall (below) looks fantastic and it is great to see their school enterprise taking shape!
The deadline for registration for the School Enterprise Challenge 2012 is fast approaching – so to any schools out there who are thinking about taking part, we would suggest now is a good time to register! Schools can enter this great competition at the following link:
If your school has recommended the School Enterprise Challenge to another school, it may also be a good idea to send them a reminder about the competition and ask them to ensure that they have signed up in time.
As always, we would be love to hear from you with any questions or comments you may have. You can visit our Facebook page here, Tweet us: @schenterprise, or contact us via email: firstname.lastname@example.org. W
