Leaders of Learners are selected and Envy win the Apprentice Project
The Business Studies and ICT Department have presented awards to two groups of students. The first group were appointed as Leaders of Learners.
The second group were Envy (pictured right), were the winners of the Year 12 “Apprentice Project” due to their impressive fund raising.
Leaders of Learners is an initiative that allows students who have a passion in Business and ICT to excel and reach their full potential. A Leader of Learner is a student who has been selected by the Business and ICT department to help other students excel in their chosen subject. They will be involved in the delivery of the curriculum, work with staff to support other students as well as further develop their own subject knowledge. They play a pivotal role within their department to ensure learning is of an outstanding quality. The selected Leaders are pictured below with their awards:
Previous Leaders of Learners stated the following about their experience:
“Being a Leader of Learners helped me to be more confident when presenting. It introduced new ways of learning information which helped with my revision. It became much easier to communicate information in a class. The initiative helped me to understand ways of tackling situations. I would begin to ask questions that would help with my exam skills. I learnt how to justify and explain my answer.” Eishivi - Year 11
“I like being challenged and being able to overcome obstacles and share my experience with other people” Zeenat - Year 11
“It allows you to use your strengths in Business to help others achieve.” Ismail - Year 11
Year 12 Business Studies students successfully completed their “Apprentice Project.” The winning team, Envy, who managed to raised £245 for WaterAid included Amandeep Singh (The Project manager), Arjun Kapoor, Abid Amiri, Kiran Hussain and Prabjot Virk. They held a cake sale along with a pizza sale for staff, and managed to convince Farm Pizza to provide free pizzas to the school for a charity cause. This demonstrated great knowledge and considerable initiative to reduce their costs to maximize their return.
Overall, all the students involved in the competition (pictured below) raised over £500 for their chosen charities, including Save the Children, Great Ormond Street Hospital and NSPCC. They worked extremely hard and gained valuable skills to do more projects in the future.
