Young Enterprise Success

In recent years Rawlett pupils have been involved with the Young Enterprise competition. Year 10 pupils have been working with their teacher Mike Harper and a local business partner who have coached them through the development of a business project. 'Team Rawlett' have developed a 'Stay Safe Online' booklet that updates parents to help them support their children with social media.

The regional finals were held on 22nd March and Team Rawlett won the South and East Staffordshire Young Enterprise Company Award as the best business. In addition, they also took the best Customer Relations award, the best Presentation and the best Company Report. It is unusual for a team to win so many awards and it was noted by the judges that our Year 10 pupils were successful against other sixth form teams!

We now move to the Staffordshire finals on May 10th which then could lead to the West Midlands event.

These 15 Rawlett students entered their Somme creative pieces into the Never Such Innocence competition.  We now know that there were a total of 981 entries for the poetry competition and 672 art entries, from 112 schools.

Ben Jackson gained a runner’s up place in the 11-14 category with his poem When the Whistle Blows: 

Over the top, when the whistle blows

Following the river of blood that flows

Bodies strewn all around

Limbs missing never to be found

Death is the only sight

As guns rain down bombs in flight

Shot from the artillery battery

A present from the death factory

Barbed wire rolled like a wreath

Laid on the ground like flowers in grief

We gave our all, we gave the most

Remember us now, as you hear the last post


In the 14-16 age group, Eloise Fradley was awarded First Place for her art work Tyne Cot Remembered.

Ben and Eloise travelled to London on Monday, accompanied by their parents and Mrs Wright for the presentation ceremony at the House of Lords
