Students rise to a challenge at Vicarage Road!

A group of Year 8 students have been involved in an 8 week Premier League Business and Enterprise programme in and out of school,  which is organised by Watford Football Club's Community Sports and Education Trust. This culminated in twelve Year 8 students entering the Enterprise Challenge which was held at Vicarage Road recently. They competed against teams of Year 9 and 10 students from other local schools.

CEIAG coordinator Mrs Payne said, 'I was so proud of all our teams. They had to present their ideas of encouraging 18-23 year olds to watch football matches at Watford football Club.  Their task was to prepare a power point and present their idea to a panel of judges, watched by all the other teams, their staff members and Watford Football Club personnel. The students were then asked questions by the judges following their presentation.

The students were so confident and their ideas were excellent. They had an opportunity to practise their presentations before presenting to the panel. The students’ behaviour was exemplary throughout their time at Vicarage Road. When I asked the boys about whether they had done anything similar before, they said that SMSC (Spiritual, Moral,Social and Moral Development) had given them the confidence to speak to an audience about a topic which interested them.’

Well done to all the students who participated in the event, and congratulations to team members Matilda, Katie, Daisy, Florence and Poppy, whose team won third place in the competition.
