All Saints Pupils are Charlie’s Champs
Budding entrepreneurs from All Saints Catholic Centre for Learning in Kirkby won two of the four prizes on offer when they represented Merseyside at the Young Enterprise North West final.
The team of 11 called themselves Royal Heart Design after Prince Charles inspired the students through his support of the school on a visit to Jaguar Land Rover, with whom All Saints has a partnership.
The year nine students are already the most successful team from Knowsley to enter the contest in the last 50 years. They were also the youngest group in the Young Enterprise finals.
They were awarded Best Trade Stand as well as Best Customer Service at the competition.
Young Enterprise is a national competition which encourages entrepreneurial talent in schools by incorporating enterprise into the curriculum. Students entering the competition are tasked with setting up and running a real firm for a year and are judged on the success of their business plan.
Throughout the academic year, the students at All Saints CCfL have been working hard on their business development while keeping up their school studies. Royal Heart Design specialises in high quality personalised printing service for gifts, events and corporate promotions. It supplies a variety of products including mugs, bags, key rings and hoodies.
