All Saints Young Entrepreneurs

Children across Y4, 5 and Y6 had a wonderful day on Thursday as part of a Business Enterprise day.

They were put into a number of teams and had to develop an outdoor music station that could be manufactured – for this they even had to work out costings and key selling points.

Lord Sugar needs to forget all about the Apprentice candidates and should come to Darfield to meet our young entrpreneurs.

There were 2 winning teams – The Darfield Drummers will go forward to compete against the other SMAT teams while the Saxophone Saints will progress to a regional final to be held at Tankersley Manor.

It seems that Paul and Becki from ‘louder than Life’ really enjoyed their day too judging by the lovely email we received from them:

Good morning ,
I just wanted to take some time out, to write to you, your staff & your incredible children!
I have delivered this challenge in various schools around Barnsley and the surrounding area for almost a year now and with the exception of a couple of schools All Saints Darfield has been one of, if not, the best school that I have had the pleasure to teach in.
From 9am to 3.15pm every single child was engaged in the challenge and gave everything to it. Their focus, commitment, behaviour and attitude was impeccable! You must be so proud of the way that they conduct themselves in and around school they are a real credit to you, your staff and themselves.
Yesterday just before they all went to lunch typified it for me, every one of the children told me to have a lovely lunch. I was blown away!
It was a pleasure to have been invited in to work with them all. Both teachers, along with yourself were brilliant on the day too, supporting, tweeting and making both Becki and myself feel very welcome in your school.
Sometimes we only hear the negative side of schools and very rarely get any positive feedback, although am sure that you and you school receive that in abundance so it was a great pleasure to send this message to you.
Thank you for a brilliant day yesterday and I am looking forward to seeing the winning team the ‘Saxophone Saints’ in December at our finals day!
Please pass on my thanks to Mr Butterwood and Miss Glyde. Could you also please say thank you to all the children who took part yesterday too.
Kindest regards,
