Taking part in the School Enterprise Challenge can be a life-changing experience for many. By being part of a school business, students get the chance to learn essential life skills in a non-traditional way: learning through doing. Here, two member of the Global Youth Advisory Panel, Nikita Soni (Choithram School) and Anusha Goel (Kulachi Hansraj Model School) reflect on their experience in the School Enterprise Challenge so far.
Which aspect of taking part in the School Enterprise Challenge have you enjoyed the most?
Nikita: “The Fundraising event turned out to be the most enjoyable part of the School Enterprise Challenge. The event brought us across the situation of an actual business. We could see and feel what customers look for: their outlook while shopping, their positive encouraging statements along with some negative replies. We faced the problems which we had read about in the books and learnt how to manage them in real life. We saw how in practice certain circumstances showed up unexpectedly and how team work and mutual support helped us get out of them. These events imbibed in us valuable experience and confidence.”
