Year 7 – National Enterprise Challenge

All year 7 pupils took part in the school heat of the National Enterprise Challenge. They worked in groups of 6 and were given the task of developing a creative way of using empty gas canisters in an environmentally friendly way. The teams also had to give thought about how to promote and finance their idea. The day finished with a number of selected teams presenting their ideas to a panel of judges who then selected a winning team. The winning team, ‘River Saver’ will now go on to represent OLCHS in the National finals in Birmingham in July.
