Fulston Manor School celebrate Ethical Enterprise Challenge 2011
Fulston Manor School’s Young Co-operative was proud to take part in the annual Ethical Enterprise Challenge, which challenged students to set up and run their own business in just three months, and students from the group attended the celebration event from 29 June-1 July.
Jack, Ben and Lewis helped to run their Ethical Business in their spare time at school by making Floppy Easter Bunnies using recycled material during the spring term. The students travelled all the way from Sittingbourne in Kent for the event, which was held in Bromsgrove. It was a resounding success with the boys taking two awards, Best Trade Stand and Excellence in Co-operation. They conducted a fantastic presentation to the other schools participating and enjoyed the experience immensely. Mrs Sarah Palmer, Young Co-operatives Co-ordinator and Community Cohesion Manager, said: “I was extremely proud of the lads. They had worked so hard alongside the other members of the Young Co-operatives and learnt so many new skills in the process. Jack created a fabulous presentation and the three boys practised and practised until they were perfect.” Funds raised from the sale of the bunnies went to the family of a year 7 at Fulston Manor who is suffering from Non Hodgkin’s Lymphoma so they could enjoy a day out on their friends at Fulston Manor.
