Core Skills Exhibition
Year 8 Core Skills students held an Exhibition last week as the Manx Telecom Enterprise Project judging final was held at Lower School.

Students from 8A, 8F and 8I were judged by business people from a variety of local businesses. The overall winners were: Isle of Magnets (8A), JETA (8F) and The Role Poly’s (8I). The judges were extremely impressed with how the students conducted themselves during the interview process and how they were able to talk about what they had done and what they had achieved.

Mr. S. Edwards, Core Skills Co-ordinator said, “We are extremely grateful to Manx Telecom for their continued support of our Enterprise Project as part of the Core Skills curriculum. By taking part in this project, students are able to learn skills such as team work, creativity, money management and problem solving, as part of a unique experience.”

Maya, a member of one of the winning groups, ‘Isle of Magnets’ said “It was really fun, we were able to be active and get out around the school selling our product. It has been a fun experience and different in a really good way. It was like you are actually in a real business.”
