Enterprising Students Use Skills Learnt on Course to Boost Prom Funds
Entrepreneurial students who are on the NVQ Hair and Beauty course used the skills they have acquired over the past two years to set up their own nail bar on Tuesday.
They offered a manicure and polish for just £4 and had students and staff queuing out the door for their services.
Students involved were Shannon Anderson, Megan Smith, Jorja Dawson, Chantelle Butler, Candy-Jo Seymour, Catherine Mckay, Paige McNeil, Mirella Piakowska, Courtney Meakins, Sophie Denton, Naomi Ward, Toni Savage and Chelsea McIntyre.
Pastoral Support Officer Caroline Border said: “The students have showed real entrepreneurial flair by using their skills to raise funds for the prom.
“It was a huge success and may be something that runs again.”
Science teacher Sally Harley was one of the customers.
She said: “I was very impressed by the initiative and the students’ maturity and professionalism. It’s not something that I usually do because of my lifestyle, as I'm too on the go but I really enjoyed it and would indulge again if the opportunity was there. It was a bit of a treat.”
Funds will go towards providing decoration for the prom, which is taking place at the Best Western Hotel, Corby, on June 27th from 7.30pm.
This year’s theme is Masquerade and Director of Art Jacqui Brown will be collaborating with students to create a bespoke arch for students to use as a photographic backdrop.
Tickets cost £20 and can be bought from student reception.
