Bonhill Primary School: A whole school approach to enterprise and employability education

bonhillFinalist at this years’ Scottish Education Awards in the category ‘Enterprise and employability ‘ Bonhill Primary School’s approach to enterprise education has permeated learning across the curriculum and beyond.  Driven by a real vision for future pathways of learners, head teacher Maria Seery has galvanised staff, parents and businesses to provide exciting, wide-ranging opportunities for learners  to develop enterprising  and  entrepreneurial mind sets.

The school is a hive of activities that allow children and young people across all stage to enhance their skills for learning , life and work.   These include a school uniform recycling scheme,  the design of the school’s own  tartan and the production of a tartan school uniform (young enterprise activity), a ‘Buds’ project that sells home-grown produce to the community, a stationary tuck shop, work placements in the school canteen, an ‘egg production’ from their school hens including an advertising campaign developed in conjunction with Radio Clyde/Bauer Media and many more initiatives .

This enterprise-assembly from the Scotland’s Enterprising School (SES) event in October ’16 summarises the schools’ main activities in this area.

The following  initiatives are showcased on Scotland’s Enterprising Schools website:
