Norwich School’s first ever Business Enterprise group got out of the classroom last week to showcase some of the concepts tackled by Mr Manton and Mr White. Norwich School, as members of the Chamber of Commerce, were asked to send pupils to help at their annual event at Norwich City Football Club. The whole class were quick to volunteer! With delegates and exhibitors from all over the region, they got the opportunity to not only help but to also network. Stephen Mace (L6S) said of the experience “it was an enjoyable one which allowed us to see our business course in practical use.”
The organiser of the event, Nova Fairbank, Public Affairs Manager for Norfolk Chamber of Commerce said “Norfolk Chamber’s Young Chamber initiative aims to help bridge the gap between young people and business, so being able to give students from Norwich School the opportunity to work with us at our flagship B2B exhibition was brilliant. All the students performed well. They were enthusiastic, polite and very helpful. The students supported the Chamber with gathering online customer feedback from attendees, supported the delivery of the Masterclass workshops, and worked on the reception areas, registering attendees as they arrived.” She added “We would be delighted to work with more students at next year’s B2B.”
The Business Enterprise group have been busy setting up their own Young Enterprise company ‘Parlimeme’, which Charlie Rogers (L6R) describes as “a company which aims to sell political jokes merchandise, from t-shirts and mugs to stress balls and posters of various political figures.”
The group will also be helping the school’s Young Chamber in their Business Breakfast event on Monday 27th November, where they will also have their product range available for sale.
