Year 10 students at Hawarden High School have been working towards an Enterprise and Employability Challenge.

To facilitate this exciting challenge the school is working in partnership with Hope House Hospice.

As part of their Welsh Baccalaureate qualification, students were asked to present their fundraising project ideas in a Dragons’ Den style meeting.

34 groups showcased their idea with a PowerPoint presentation and stood before the Dragons to talk through their ideas, finance and marketing plans, with the hope to secure a £10 investment which they will turn into much more for Hope House.

The groups came up with ideas including a Christmas grotto, sweet and cake stalls, Scalextric competition and running inter form sporting events. All groups were successful in securing the £10 investment.

Mr Paul Ellis, Head teacher stated “the quality of the presentations and the thought behind the projects was exceptional and the Dragons were very impressed with the student’s skills, maturity and business acumen.”

The Dragons who participated in this event and shared their business knowledge with the students were; Ian Wade owner of the Ring O’Bells, Urbano 32 and the Burger Shed, Rose Mitchell, Sean Ray, Sue Ray, Susan Gilliam, Debra Jones and William Nuttall from MBNA, Josh Jenkins and Adam Hughes from DRB, Alex Lewis from Tesco, Alan Spaven from Spaven’s sweet shop, Stephanie Wynne from Glyndwr University, Angela Carrigan from Hope House and Steve Morgan from the P&A Group.

This is the second year the school has been involved with the Dragons’ Lair Challenge and last year the school rose over £3,500 for Hope House.

The students will be selling their products in a Christmas Enterprise Extravaganza at Hawarden High School on Friday 25th November 2016 6-8pm.
