The S1 Enterprise Group have worked extremely well this year and have managed to raise the magnificent amount of £300, which they have split equally between their chosen charities , Cancer Research UK and the Motor Neurone Disease Association.
The group which comprises of Caitlin Davis, Fraser Dalgleish, Logan Davidson, Josh Etherington, Katie Gavienas- Tweedlie, Scott Kirkwood, Lisa MacLeod, Kian McRitchie, Max Smith, Heather Stewart, Mark Waugh and Matylda Wrobel set up their own company called “Enterprisers” and worked together throughout the session to create, advertise and market products which they then sold to peers in school.
The group created hand- made cards, delicious cakes, hand- painted candle holders and personalised mugs and also enjoyed setting up their own stall to sell the products. The pupils all contributed very well to the group and enjoyed the experience.
They also raised the highest Mearns Castle S1 Enterprise charity total to date.
Congratulations to all who participated!
