Young Enterprise Scotland is Scotland’s leading business skills programme provider for aspiring young people. The programme gives learners the opportunity to develop skills for life, learning and work by developing their own small business.
Throughout the year both of Beaconhurst’s Young Enterprise Companies worked incredibly hard to achieve what they did at the Young Enterprise Forth Valley Finals on 23 April 2014. On the day the standard from other participating teams was exceptionally high but at the end of the day Beaconhurst’s Pandora’s Box and Bonny Wee Things picked up the 4 big prizes – Best Trade Stand at Finals, Best Presentation, Best Company Report and Most Effective Sales Technique. Pandora’s Box was voted Best Comapny Overall for 2104 and will represent Forth Valley at the Scottish finals in June with Bonny Wee Things placed 3rd in the Best Company Overall awards.
Mrs Vekic, Young Enterprise Leader says “It has been a pleasure to work with the pupils over the past year, their enthusiasm, grit and determination to succeed has never wavered throughout the entire Young Enterprise competition; all the hard work and effort has paid off in the end. It certainly has been a steep learning curve for all involved this year.”
Mr Stewart Cameron, Beaconhurst Young Enterprise Advisor added – “Congratulations to the two Young Enterprises from Beaconhurst School that won the four top awards yesterday evening – Bonny Wee Things for winning the Best Presentation and Pandora’s Box for having the Best Trade Stand, Best Company Report and were judged to be the Best Company Overall. As the Chairperson and other judges mentioned the standard of YE’s participating this year was even higher than in previous years, which means that for Beaconhurst School to come out top in each of the main Award categories is truly a remarkable achievement – reflecting well on the quality of effort, enthusiasm, creativity and teamwork displayed by the individual participants. It has been an honour and pleasure to have acted as the YE Business Adviser for Beaconhurt School during the past several months and I thank both YE’s for their kind gifts and words of appreciation re my role. To have been associated with the Award winning performances of such remarkable young pupils from Beaconhurst School has been a most rewarding and satisfying experience. I’m confident that the experience of participating in the YE programme will contribute greatly to each of the participants achieving their true potential in their future careers. Good luck and best wishes to everyone with their future endeavours.”
