On the 22nd March 2016, our enterprise team ‘Garth Super Troopers’ participated in the National final of the Welsh Government’s ‘Enterprise Troopers’ competition. The competition was held at The Dr. Who Centre in Cardiff Bay and the four members of the team, Carys Evans, Isobel Tarr, Demi-Leigh Price and Phoebe Simmons did a fantastic job demonstrating to four judges from the business world how and why their business (‘Scrabble Art’ decorations and Reindeer Hot Chocolate) performed as it did.
On the day of the competition they presented to the audience and outlined to the judges the skills they had cultivated in the process of creating and developing their business such as motivation, setting and achieving goals, working cooperatively, generating ideas and solving problems.
Their business made a very healthy profit of £417, some of which has funded new tag rugby bibs for the school, and a donation to the Urdd Eisteddfod 2017 fund.
The team impressed the judges as well as Edwina Hart the Minister for Economy with their passion, knowledge and entrepreneurial skills. We were thrilled how they conducted themselves on the day and were even more delighted that they beat off stiff competition (15 other teams from across Wales) to achieve one of the main prizes: The ‘Team Spirit’ award.
