Greetings cards arouse all manner of emotions but it was pride which emanated from year 6 students from Edgeware, Tiverton and Brunswick today.

The thirty students came together at Argent’s Regeneration House, near Kings Cross, and following some icebreakers they got their heads down to tackle this commercial challenge.

Six teams of five students from different schools put their enterprise skills into practice to design, produce and sell their own greetings card range, with the ultimate aim of maximising profits. Following the initial budgeting phase, innovation, strategic thinking and profits flowed with the challenge culminating in a presentation from each team.

In fact, who better to describe the experience than our own greetings card entrepreneurs? They told us how the teams had got to know each other, how they had developed communication skills, teamwork skills and creative skills to overcome the challenges they faced. Reflecting upon the day, the overarching theme was one of pride. Students were proud of the profits they made, proud of their teams despite only knowing one another for a few hours and proud of their different contributions. Certainly the judges, teachers and all of us at EE were highly impressed.
