The School: St Francis de Sales

St Francis de Sales in Haringey have been working with Enabling Enterprise for a number of years to develop their students’ enterprise skills which match many of their school values such as resilience, teamwork and aspiration. Having taken part in Lesson-Time Projects and trips to London businesses over the school year, today was a great opportunity for students across the whole school to further build on their enterprise skills.

The Challenge: Operation Moonbase

Today’s Challenge Day involved teams being set the challenge of creating a new moon colony for humankind. This began with selecting the ideal crew for the mission, and teams had to use their Problem Solving skills to weigh up the pros and cons of different jobs. They also had to work within a budget to design the new city on their moon colony. After building a 3D model of this city, teams had to keep Working as a Team as they were given the final task of presenting their ideas to the rest of their class.

The Results:

It was clear that students across the school had been Sharing Ideas and Using Imagination at their best throughout the day, as an array of different species of animals and different types of cities emerged on Utopia. Teachers and the Enabling Enterprise team were hugely impressed with the collaboration shown by all teams. Teams also dealt really well with all the different challenges, and it was especially impressive to see that students always stayed positive when solving the problems that came their way.

What they said:

  • “I think they’ve all really enjoyed the day – initially in some groups there were some big personalities who were finding it hard to share their ideas, but over the day I’ve definitely seen their teamwork progress.” – Teacher, Year 2
  • “I think my team has really improved on our teamwork skills today. Even when we had different ideas, we listened to each other and made sure we were all on the same page when it came to the final idea.” – Student, Year 6

Well done to everyone who was involved.
