On 1 February our three companies attended the Young Enterprise trade fayre at the Kennet Centre in Newbury. An early start was required to get their trade stands set up and ready to sell to the public at 9am. A lot of work was put in prior to the event: designing and preparing the stand, ensuring there were sufficient products to sell and organising a rota for the day. The event was an excellent opportunity for students to discuss their products with the general public and some sales revenue was also generated!
The Year 7 Boys 5-a-side team represented Newbury schools in the South of England 5-a-side football tournament in Eastleigh last Tuesday. They played matches against the best schools from Berkshire, Devon, Dorset, the Isle of Wight and the Channel Islands, to name a few! Well done to all boys who played in this prestigious tournament.
