Activities Week 2016 - A student view.

posted 15 Jul 2016, 09:14 by Daren White   [ updated 20 Jul 2016, 04:18 ]

From my point of view this week has been educational and will most definitely help me in the future.

On Wednesday we started our Dragons’ Den presentations, working together and helping each other out in so many ways, mentally and physically. We bonded as a team and this helped us use our skills and gain confidence.  

On Thursday we had to present our business idea to the Dragons aka Mr Griffin, Mr Baker and Mr Tyrrell, it was scary but we came through it together and did our best.

On Friday we had our Mock job interviews which were really great.  It showed us how to present ourselves and gave us an idea of how it feels to be in a real interview situation. I think this week has been amazing and has been the best week of my school life because it has prepared me for the outside world.
