The student-led management team of Go Shop at All Hallows literally ‘rose‘ to the challenge in addressing the ‘Valentine’ market by selling beautifully hand-wrapped single red ‘roses‘ on 14 February.
The pod was decorated with giant red hearts to attract the attention of students and teachers and quickly became a ‘hive’ of activity as the ‘roses‘ went on sale. Half the roses sold out immediately, with the other half selling easily throughout lunch time.
The management team comprises year 13 level 3 BTEC business students who are studying units in business planning and developing teams in business. They have risen to many challenges so far this year and all their efforts not only benefit students in college, but also provide evidence for their coursework.
Alongside the sale of ‘roses’, Go-Bite, a team of year-8 BITE students who have set up a young co-operative with teacher, Mr Blades, sold a batch of strawberry lip balm, on a ‘valentine’ theme, which was hand-made using wax from The All Hallows College’s bees.
Another year-8 young co-operative sold cakes decorated with hearts. All these enterprise activities support fundraising for The India Clinic Appeal.
