This morning over 35 budding entrepreneurs from Year 6 at Ormiston College pitched their business ideas to Entrepreneur, Mr Steve Baxter, who is well known for his role in the TV Show Shark Tank. Our Headmaster, Mr Webster and Business Manager, Mrs Johal were also on the panel.
The students were very excited and did a fabulous job with their presentations. The panel were very impressed with their innovative business ideas, pitch, products and great team work.
Mr Baxter selected “Reading Angels” to be the recipients of the 2018 Entrepreneur Award as he felt that this was a unique concept and would provide a valuable service to our elderly in the community.
The student’s next challenge will be preparing for the Market Day at OC on Thursday 18 October at lunchtime in the Junior School Courtyard. They will also investigate the possibilities of outside markets to provide them with further real-world experiences.
