Luckley Entrepreneurs support Phillipines
Luckley House School in Wokingham held an exciting event on Thursday 21 November 2013; The Luckley Christmas Apprentice. The event was organised by Luckley House Friends, the schools Parent Association Body and was a great success!
It took the form of a Christmas Fair, but with a difference. The stalls were all run by teams of students, as part of a House competition. Each House team had a Junior and a Senior team and was given a budget of 25, with which to design, create, brand, promote and then sell a product at the Christmas Fair. The stalls were colourful and creatively presented, and sold products ranging from beautiful hand-made Christmas Cards, printed Christmas themed T-Shirts, home-made fudge, sweets, cakes and biscuits, jewellery, Christmas decorations, to a hair painting and portrait sketching!
The competition was judged by six independent markers, who scored each team in three categories: Team Organisation and Spirit; Stall Presentation and Final Profit. The winning teams were Cavell House Juniors, who had made beautiful hand-made Christmas candles and cakes, making a profit of 187. Cornish House won the Senior title with very popular lavender bags and chocolates, making a staggering profit of 209. The girls raised an impressive total profit allowing us to donate at least 500 to the Philippines appeal.
Each winning team was presented with the Luckley Christmas Apprentice Cup.
Headmistress Jane Tudor said: There was a great buzz in the hall and I was extremely impressed with the team spirit the girls showed, as well as their creativity, entrepreneurial skills and determination to win! A big thank you must go to our Parent Association, Luckley House Friends for their hard work and commitment to supporting Luckley with events such as this.Published: December 5 2013
