Young Enterprise - Year 5
The Manchester United Enterprise Academy Final!
After being chosen as winners to represent Wardley CE Primary School with a clothing brand for pets, Devils Animal Clothing, they were through to the final at Co-op Academy Swinton.
On arrival, we were shown the theatre, where they were going to perform. The children were not daunted; they loved the challenge of presenting in front of a large audience.
After watching three local schools present, it was Wardley’s turn. All five children were superb ambassadors of Wardley CE Primary School. The dragons commented on how well the presentation went, and they posed difficult questions. The opening question put the children at ease - In your market research, why didn’t you ask dogs what they thought? They became progressively harder and they were able to talk clearly and confidently about the marketing and branding of their company.
Lord Sugar had better watch out - these children could be the entrepreneurs of the future.
The wait for the decision to be announced was nail biting with Mr Harrison, Co-op Academy Swinton’s headteacher, awarding the prize to Mossfield Primary School. For getting to the final, each member of the team was rewarded with a tour of Manchester United Football Club.
A big well done to all involved.
