Young Entrepreneur Masterclass

During the recent summer holidays some of our students took part in a statewide competition run by the Innovation Institute of WA.  It was advertised on the school website, and the challenge was taken up by Eva Mustapic, Zach Iskandar and Jared Clark from Year 9.

Our students enjoyed a three day masterclass with keynote speakers and learned about developing ideas, creating business plans, how to get finance for and market new ideas. They also discussed copyright and intellectual property.  The participants then took their own ideas and applied their newfound knowledge to come up with a pitch that would hopefully impress the judges.  Our three students worked as part of a team and were the winners of the first prize, a $2000 cheque from Bendigo Bank.

Yesterday, the state representative of the bank came to our Year 9 assembly and awarded each of our students with their prize winnings.  Eva described their invention to the group, which was a bendable coathanger.  Their presentation was deemed by far the most impressive of the entire masterclass and their performance and behaviour throughout was a credit to them.  Well done!
