The School: Kenmont Primary School

Kenmont Primary School are starting their third year as an Enabling Enterprise Partner School, they have been working in the classroom to develop their enterprise skills such as teamwork, leadership and resilience. Having taken part in the Day in Politics Challenge Day last term and the Money Matters finance trip, these Year 4 students were enthusiastic and well prepared for their next financial challenge.

The business: GE Capital, London

GE Capital provides financial services and knowledge and expertise to a huge range of businesses to help them grow and develop. Based at The Ark building in Hammersmith, they employ people in a wide variety of sectors from marketing to IT to banking.

The Challenge: Invest for Success

The students were set the challenge of becoming investment managers for the day, looking to make the most money for their clients. To be successful, they had to listen carefully and learn about new concepts such as investing in companies and managing risk. They used their new knowledge to work as a team to invest the money of their clients wisely, taking advice from the GE Capital volunteers.

The Results:

Year 4 ended the day by making brilliantly professional presentations to the judges, persuading them why they should continue to be the investment managers to act on behalf of their clients. The judges were extremely impressed by the confident presentations and how well each team had thought carefully about where to invest their money, using what they’d learnt about risk and the needs of their clients.

What they said:

  • “They’ve done really well today, it’s been great” – Teacher, Kenmont Primary School
  • “I’ve been so impressed that they’ve understood quite complex ideas so well, they’ve done a fantastic job.” – Volunteer, Business
  • “It is really important to work well as a team because that made everything much easier” – Student, Kenmont Primary

Thanks to GE Capital for such a great trip day, and to Kenmont Primary School for coming along.
