The School:

Beech Hill Primary School is in their fourth year working with Enabling Enterprise. Previously, students have been busy developing their essential skills by participating in exciting Challenge Days and, just last week, several lucky students saw how the skills are used in the world of work when they visited a local construction site. Today’s challenge was a fantastic opportunity for all students from Year 6 to put their enterprise skills to the test.


The Challenge: Social Entrepreneur

Over the course of the day, students used their Working in a Team skills to develop entrepreneurial solutions to social problems that need tackling. In teams, the students explored the different problems affecting the people in their community, before applying their Problem Solving skills to decide on the best way to help them. After developing a plan for the new social enterprise and creating advertising materials, students used their Presenting skills to share their solutions in a community trade fair.

What they said:

  • “We’ve chosen to focus on leadership today. They really do need more of this!” – Teacher
  • “I’ve been really impressed with how they’ve thought about other people – the community, and their team members.” – Teacher
  • “We want to make a difference and our team can do that!” – Student
  • “To be a good team member, it is important to listen to each other and be loyal and respectful.” – Student

Thanks to everyone for such a great Challenge Day!
