TALENTED pupils have shown they are the business.
Christleton High School students took part in a Dragon’s Den-style competition.
Teacher and Enterprise co-ordinator Emma Simpson said: “The competition requires pupils to work for 12 weeks during lessons in groups of three or four on a business idea.
“It could be a product or service. They work out if there is anything similar on the market, who their competition is, who their target audience is.
“They design everything from the initial product idea, to the marketing and the finance in the form of a business plan.”
Six classes took part and each class had a winning team that was put through to the final.
The afternoon was dedicated to the teams pitching to the judges (the dragons) and the audience.
This year’s winning team was Track Me – three girls who were inspired by the problems of lost luggage last year and designed an imaginary tracking device for bags.
Ms Simpson said: “The pupils enjoy the event and the competition is fierce. They produced some fantastic ideas.”
