Year 8 Enterprise – Mosaic Enterprise Challenge

Mosaic Enterprise Challenge

The Mosaic’s Enterprise Challenge is an inter-school competition which encourages a spirit of entrepreneurship amongst young people. In addition to encouraging an understanding of business and enterprise, participants also develop a number of transferable skills such as: confidence; team work; meeting deadlines; clarity of expression; lateral and creative thinking; and flexibility and adaptability. This year we asked year 8’s to volunteer for the programme and we have 24 teams take part.

Students learnt about businesses, business principles and then applied them by playing an online business simulation game during which they produced, marketed and sold one of five products. Each team had the opportunity to play the game as many times as they wish until the closing date of 3rd March. The team’s highest profit over all the games is then taken and the top five scoring schools are then invited to the Regional Finals.

Massive congratulations to team 18 (8-1 Orla, Rose, Amy and Isabel) who will represent the school at the Regional finals at KPMG on 29th March. We wish them all the best.

Mosaic North West – Enterprise Challenge Regional Final

MOSAIC success 2016Emma S, Sarah W, Millie P and Mary T (8-1) did themselves and the school proud today by winning the Regional Final of the Mosaic Enterprise Challenge. They will now represent the NW at the Grand Final in London on Wednesday 4th May. They competed against teams from Parrs Wood High School, Ladybridge High School, The Hathershaw School and Levenshulme High School.

They were required to make a social enterprise idea pitch about an idea that benefits their school to a panel of judges. Their social enterprise was called Elevate – “uplifting the lives of people in our society“. The pitch they submitted was:

In the modern era, there are an increasing number of elderly people, either living on their own or in residential homes but without a strong community to care for them or to make them feel appreciated. The situation is made worse by the increasing mobility of younger family members who often live long distances away from elderly relatives. This can result in loneliness, boredom and depression – 49% of people aged 65+ say that television or their pets are their main form of company. Loneliness can be as harmful for our health as smoking 15 cigarettes a day!
We would like to extend the hand of friendship to our local elderly people by inviting them to regular social meetings at our school. They can meet each other and talk to us about their experiences and enjoy tea and cake. We could also provide entertainment with musical recitals and dancing, and offer some basic training in IT and help to use modern technology like iPads and mobile phones. By using contacts with churches, synagogues, mosques, GP surgeries and other community groups, we will identify people in need of companionship and invite them to these social meetings.

For winning the Regional final they have been invited to Old Trafford to watch a match from a corporate VIP box.

The Grand Final allows them to compete for:

  • £2500 for the school;
  • £500 to start their social enterprise;
  • iPad mini’s;
  • winner’s trophy plus individual prizes
  • plus a one of a kind day in London (previous winners have had tea with Samantha Cameron, been chauffeured in a Rolls Royce and had a tour of Clarence House).

This is a fantastic opportunity for the girls as well as the school.
