Pupils’ learn valuable business lessons

Have your say

YOUNG entrepreneurs hosted a spooky Halloween disco for fellow pupils at The Bourne Academy.

The team of sixth form pupils organised the event for their Young Enterprise project and their diploma in business administration and finance.

Members of company Avvenimenti - which is Italian for events - were pleased with how the night went and learned valuable business lessons.

Peter Ledger, 17, said: “We had about 70 people come to the disco. They all had a good time and we made £40 profit which was good. We didn’t get as many people as we hoped for so we need to advertise more for our next event.”

Avvenimenti’s next event will be a Christmas fair at The Bourne Academy on Saturday, November 26 from 1-4pm.
