Year 5 Boardroom Challenge

17th March 2015

Year 5 got a taste of the world of work today when they took part in the launch of Newcastle Building Society's Boardroom Challenge. All of the pupils worked in teams to make and market bags and kites which would promote the theme of saving money to adults and children. The activity leaders were very impressed with the teamwork and organisation skills of all the pupils. At the end of the session they all had to present their work and the best efforts were selected by the Alnwick branch manager to be displayed in their Alnwick office.

The next stage of the competition will see the pupils competing against each other to win £1000 which will be used to fund a charity event designed to raise money for a mini bus for Barndale School. The finalists will be selected on June 2nd and will then go forward to the regional final in Newcastle on Thursday 18th June where they will compete against 7 other schools from the North East.
