‘Something the school cannot teach them’

Finding a business idea and pitching it to three successful business people was the challenge set to Year 6 at High Beeches Junior School. Rotary in Harpenden provided the initial funding to teams, all of which are invited to run their businesses at this year’s school summer ‘Feastival’.

With a wide variety of ideas ranging from customised craft products through planting seedlings to ball games, Year 6 did themselves proud.

Drawing on their own business experience, Rotary in Harpenden members set out simple formats for business plans, gave coaching in pitching skills and talked through ideas of costs and profits. It was clear from the reaction of the expert Dragons that this support had paid dividends in terms of the quality of the ideas and the presentations.
