Success for Flintshire school
Flintshire Communities First supported students from Ysgol Maes Hyfryd in Flint recently who took part in a Young Enterprise project.
The project team "Hyfryd Seasons" was partly funded by Communities First and the school was successful, winning the Best Team Presentation at the Young Enterprise Cymru Final in Cardiff.
An enterprise team of ten 6th form students developed a business model to provide popular products and services at a reasonable price. All made by the students, items include cards for all occasions and seasonal crafts for special events.
Their customers are students, staff and visitors to school. Their aim was to be an effective team and work extremely hard to be the best they can be.
Flintshire County Council's Cabinet Member for Economic Development, Councillor Derek Butler, said:
"This is a great achievement by these students. I'm delighted that they have won this prestigious award but, not only that, I am very proud and they should also be proud of what they have accomplished."
Beverley Moseley, an officer with Communities First, said:
"I attended the event and the students delivered a great fun-filled presentation which kept the audience fully informed and engaged and received great praise from the judges when they delivered their results."
Young Enterprise is the UK's leading charity that empowers young people to harness their personal and business skills, it works directly with young people, their teachers and businesses. Its hands-on employability and financial education programmes have been delivered to many schools in Community First areas in Flintshire.
