National Enterprise Finals - watch our video entries!

Dear Parents

Every year at CGS, years 7 & 10 take part in the National Enterprise Challenge.  It starts in January, where they are split into teams for the day and the winning groups from each year are selected to take part in “The Finals” which normally take place in July alongside 200 other schools.  Last year, our year 10 group “Girls Get Goals” were crowned winners following an amazing presentation.

This year, our winning teams only found out in May that the finals would be taking place virtually!  They only had a month to follow the brief, work as a team virtually and produce a 4 minute presentation for the end of June deadline. They put in an impressive amount of hard work and effort and we truly believe the CGS teams have a great chance of being selected as one of the 5 Grand Finalists so we have everything crossed for them tomorrow.

We therefore thought it would be a nice idea to share their presentations with years 7, 8, 9 & 10 which are available to view here:

If you would like to watch the virtual final, it is being broadcast at 2pm on Wednesday, 15th July and you can access the finals via this linkThe final will last just over an hour.  The finals will be hosted by TV Magician and star of Dancing On Ice, Ben Hanlin and as well as the results of this year's Air Products and Grenade Challenges there will be interviews with challenge ambassador, Nick Jenkins and founder of Grenade, Alan Barratt.

Please do encourage your son/daughter to watch the above (if their lesson commitments allow) so you can all see what this challenge can achieve.  Here is a link to some quotes from CGS in the TNEC Hall of Fame https://twitter.com/_tnec/status/1277967698303963136
