The School:

Carlton Primary School is in their 4th year working with Enabling Enterprise. Throughout the term, students have been busy developing their Enterprise Skills by taking part in their Lesson Time Projects. Year 4 are preparing their new, healthy range of bars to share with parents and members of the community. Meanwhile, Year 1 are busy thinking about their gallery opening for The Great Exhibition. Today’s challenge was a fantastic opportunity for students from Year 1 to Year 6 to put their Enterprise Skills to the test.

The Challenge: A Day in Politics

Over the course of the day, students had the opportunity to practice their Working in a Team skill by setting up their very own political parties. They dived head first into the world of politics, learning about democracy and carrying out debates before setting up their own political parties. Students were Sharing Ideas about which areas of society they wanted to help and how they might spend their money to support them. The project culminated with an exciting election to determine the most persuasive political party!

What they said:

  • “Many of the students have made such progress in the skills over the day, especially their ability to work in a team ” – Teacher
  • “They’ve come up with some really thoughtful and creative ways to help their community – I’m really impressed with the quality of their ideas” – Teacher
  • “I think we should get rid of all coal and oil powered stations and use energy from the wind and the sun instead” – Student
  • “I really wanted to do a task but I knew another member of my team also wanted to do it. A good team leader doesn’t mind sharing with others to make it great! “- Student

Thanks to everyone for such a great Challenge Day!
