Second place for TGA at The Enterprise Challenge 2019!

11th  June 2019

Over three days, a group of nine Year 5 pupils took part in an apprentice-style event held at Salmons Estate. Lilly, Shahzaib, Wiktoria, Brooke, Jayden, Sophie, Lola, Daniel, and Frankie had to design and make an educational toy or game, create a TV advert and prepare a presentation to be judged at the trade fair on the final day. There were 6 judges; including the Mayor and business secretary PM Greg Clark. BBC South East Today even came to film the preparations and interviewed our group. After lots of creative thinking and hard work, our team was awarded a well-deserved second place. There were 15 schools that took part altogether.

“That was the best thing ever.” Said Frankie.
“We will never forget this experience.” Said Wiktoria.
“I never knew I could do this, and I’ve made new friends. We have all really bonded”. Said Brooke.
“It doesn’t matter that we didn’t win. It was such good fun”. Said Shahzaib.

Year 5

It was a fantastic experience. The children were so focused and determined to do well. They really gave it their all and produced an excellent, quality product. It was a real pleasure working with them.

Thank you very much to Mr Pritchard and Mrs Harris for all their help cutting and colouring in! Also, thank you to Brooke’s dad, Lola’s dad and Shahzaib’s mum, who also came to the trade fair to support the school.
