KS5 Enterprise Conference
Congratulations to all our Year 13 Welsh Baccalaureate pupils who successfully delivered their presentations at the KS5 Enterprise Conference on Friday 16th October.
The pupils have been working on their Innovation Proposals as part of their Skills Challenge and Welsh Baccalaureate qualification and on Friday they got the opportunity to showcase their business idea to Deloitte, one of the Big Four accountancy firms that operate globally.
Twenty-one Deloitte employees attended the virtual conference, with several of them observing and evaluating each team’s proposal. Despite the Covid-19 restrictions (and the few technical issues we experienced on the day!), the pupils excelled themselves and they should all be proud of what they achieved. They all attended with maturity and professionalism and the feedback from Deloitte was a true testament to how our pupils presented themselves on the day.
We just want to say a big thank you to everyone who made the day such a success:
- Steve Khaireh
- The Year 13s
- The teachers
- The support staff
- The I.T staff
- The Estates staff
“Each and every one of them gave their all in their presentations.”
“What really shone through was the amazing support the students gave one another.”
“They all adapted really well considering the surroundings.”
“I started to feel slightly emotional because after all the students have been through this year, to see them so supportive of each other, so engaged and so excited about their presentations, was really lovely. It was clear to see they were feeling good about themselves and more than anything else, that is what we wanted.”
“I found this morning to be a great experience and a pleasure to listen to the fantastic year 13 students. Please extend my thanks to all students, they really did do well under difficult circumstances.”
“We really enjoyed seeing the students do well and how much hard work they had obviously put in!”
