Students have been working on a viable enterprise or product using their creative and business skills. The three groups who made the final were – Electric with Niteesh; Square Stix _ Zeal, Betty-Louise and Maisie-Ann. Postie – Taylor and Calum. Year 12 and 13 Business students also attended the final to offer their support and help the staff (Ms Lewis, Mrs Kinghorn and Mrs O’Leary) make the winning decisions.
The overall winner was Niteesh with an amazing, creative technology idea, which he researched, compiled and presented professionally. Taylor and Calum were commended for their idea. Zeal and Betty-Louise for their hard work.
