Middle School Enterprise Activities
In the Autumn term at St John’s College, enterprise activities are held for R12-14 with the view to developing communicating, creativity, problem-solving and team-working skills for the future. These skills are essential in any profession. Developing these skills at a young age is key.
R12 pupils this year had to demonstrate creativity and the ability to work as a team to design outfits out of raw materials such as newspaper and card, which were then presented by the team and judged by our very own teachers.
The R13 pupils took on different roles in their activity e.g. accountant, general foreman, site engineer etc… whilst reproducing a hidden model only seen by one pupil who was the architect. Pupils were only allowed to undertake specific tasks and eventually built a replica of the model. The team which produced the correct model and which had the closest value to the build won.
R14 had the opportunity to design a chocolate box. As a team they had to design the box, come up with a suitable and catchy name and slogan for the chocolates and also present the chocolate box to the rest of the year.
All pupils did extremely well, really getting stuck in to the work. Well done everyone, especially the winners!
