Year 6 STRIDE Entrepreneurship Programme

Year 6 STRIDE Entrepreneurship Programme

The Year 6 boys have been taking part in The STRIDE Entreprenuership programme.

They split into groups and each took on roles such as Finance Manager, Marketing Manager, Stall Manager and Operations Manager, and with a loan of £40 had to decide on products and services to provide on their stalls.

After 8 weeks of preparation they performed their 'perfect pitches' for their entrepreneurial projects to a panel of three judges (a local entreupreneur, an entrepreur parent and the school's Marketing Manager).

The fact that the boys had completed their public speaking in English really helped them with this part of the project. The feedback from judges and Stride leaders was that all groups and all boys made extremely strong pitches and even showed gratitude to other groups who had helped them! Outstanding collaboration!

"I was blown away by the high level of all the presentations. The confidence, the understanding of their products, costs and strategies were superb. An absolutely brilliant effort from all of them and they really should all be highly commended. One thing that stood out the most for me above all was how each team was so supportive of the other teams, mentioning where other teams had helped and thanking them. That really highlighted the Elmhurst ethos at its finest. A brilliant job done by the boys and I was so proud. Thanks for letting me part of a truly fabulous day." - Parent Entrepreneur

In the afternoon, the boys held the enterprise fair, setting up their stalls and began trading. They were highly successful in turning a profit; the counting still continues but it is in excess of £500 between the 4 groups - an amazing effort!
