Our Christmas markets looked a little different this year! Students had to get a little more creative and submit their business plans and photos of their prototype online. With the help of our Web Developer we were able to create an online virtual shop where we then asked students to vote over a week for their favourite product.
After over a 1000 votes – the votes were finally in for the winners of the Christmas Enterprise markets 2020!!
We are looking for budding entrepreneurs to showcase their prototype of a Christmas product on our AGGS Christmas website. There will be no goods or money exchanged, this is a competition to showcase the best Christmas prtotype of a product. This has to be just one product created by yourself or a team of up to 4 people from your class only. We want you to complete the online business plan and upload 3 photos of your prototype product here….by the deadline of Friday 27th November.
The best entries will be loaded on to the website and students will vote for their favourite. The winner will be announced during the last week of term.
Many of you may have visited the Christmas markets, where you would have suddenly entered the Christmas spirit, with jolly music playing and many Christmas treats around! Thanks to some students in Year 7, 8 and 9, AGGS enjoyed a wide range of popular stalls from scrunchies, origami, hot chocolate, a variety of iced cakes and cookies and a whole lot more! There were a number of tempting goodies on offer which were joyfully consumed by all years and sold out fully in the case of a number of stalls. Pupils, Sixth Formers and Teachers bustled through the doors of the main hall, both Monday lunchtimes, to the crowded stalls. Everyone was eager to purchase something from our students and to do some early Christmas shopping, whilst snacking on a festive biscuit or cake. There were clearly many wonderful gifts to choose from! The money which has been raised by our young entrepreneur’s stalls will be split 50% to them, 25% to the school the school enterprise fund (used to fund other enterprise activities) and 25% to a charity of the school’s choice. They are thankful for the support they have been given by everyone!
The Y7, Y8 and Y9 Christmas Enterprise markets were as successful and as busy as ever this year. We had a variety of creative stalls selling; fridge magnets, gift tags, friendship bracelets, origami and homemade gift wrapped biscuits and sweets. Congratulations to all the students who took part, you all worked very hard to produce some amazing, original and good quality products. The winner for the best group and displaying the most entrepreneurial skills will be announced after Christmas.
