J�adore, a Young Enterprise Company from Malvern St James are celebrating after being named �Overall Winner� at the South Worcestershire Spring Trade Fair last Saturday. Their latest product �The Essential Guide to Boarding School� handbook beat off all competition to win the award for �Best Product�. Headmistress, Mrs Woodhouse, attended the fair and said, �In what was a very competitive event with many schools in the local area putting forward their Young Enterprise teams, this is a fantastic result. We are thrilled with the girls� success�.

Rosie Baker, one of the founders, explains the background to this exciting company: �J�adore is a dynamic and diverse company, formed of 12 enthusiastic sixth form students who are passionate about learning more about the business world. Our company is focused on providing original, high-quality products centred around a boarding school theme.

As a company of young students we pride ourselves on forward thinking innovation and a fresh outlook on the boarding school stereotype, which rivals that of any adult competitors in this sector.

To celebrate Valentine�s Day and the launch of our latest product, a guidebook for boarding school students, J�adore hosted a balloon release on the 14th February, when 100 balloons took to the air. The book has been produced by members of the young enterprise company and covers a wide range of topics, from decorating your dorm to teaching you the �boarding school lingo�. It is aimed at both new and current students. In the lead up to the release, J�adore organised a variety of activities around the school including a Valentine�s Day Treasure Hunt for the Junior Department students, a romantic-comedy movie night in one of the boarding houses and selling a full range of the products during lunch hours.�
