Entrepreneurs take on the County Schools Challenge
A group of our Year 8 students have been challenged to come up with an enterprising idea to help young people learn about healthy relationships.
Northamptonshire Police has challenged schools across the county to come up with innovative business plans for projects to tackle unhealthy relationships and child sexual exploitation as part of this year’s County Schools Challenge.
Students have been asked to find ways to help other young people understand what a healthy relationship should be and where to turn if relationships become unhealthy or abusive.
CBA Teacher Karen Owen is working with a group of our Year 8 students on the project.
She said: “Our team has the beginnings of a brilliant idea that will educate young people about relationships.
“They have begun thinking about the age range they want to pitch it to and the key issues that that age range faces.
“Last year’s team did really well in the competition so we are hoping for a good result again this time.”
The competition will culminate with the final at the Lighthouse Theatre in Kettering where a Dragons' Den style panel of experts will pick the overall winning idea.
Our team meets on Mondays during Session 4. Any boys who want to join the team should contact Miss Owen.
