Year 7 undertake their first empower day at Chelsea Football Club with the Chelsea Foundation and Edge of Box club. On arrival the girls were wowed by the suite we were in overlooking the pitch and could not wait to take their own photos.
The girls experienced an outstanding inspirational talk by Winsome Duncan, which the girls loved chanting her mantra as loud as they possibly could before experiencing 4 business workshops to gain the skills needed for their very own enterprise challenge.
Pupils then worked in groups to put together their own strategy to sell Chelsea FC Ladies football shirts at a market stall. They had to not only consider their market and price but their branding and how they were going to draw their customers in. After some excellent team work, each team had to present their final idea to the panel of business judges.
There were some excellent presentations and the business judges had a tough time deliberating their final winners. The lucky winners who will each receive an adult and child ticket to the ladies FC football match were the Purple group.
It was an excellent day with exceptional team work and challenge for all involved.
