Dragons’ Den

Developing creative thinking

Can 11-year-olds be good at business?  Indeed they can.

Deputy Head Stephanie Shewbridge commented: ‘Thanks to Rotary in Harpenden, our young people have a wonderful opportunity to develop their creative thinking skills, team working and presentation abilities, as well as the challenge and enjoyment of then selling their products and services at our Summer Fair.’
