PUPILS at Stamford Queen Eleanor School were “left buzzing” after a special day learning commercial and entrepreneurial skills.

The Bright Futures Motivate Year 8 Programme engages pupils with quizzes, novel activities, construction and trading challenges to help reinforce the importance teamwork plays in business and the economy.

Queen Eleanor Headteacher Wendy Hamilton said: “One of the keys to being a successful school both now and in the future is to provide students from all year groups with the opportunity to work together in different ways.

“These days allow them to think differently and really focus on developing their teamwork skills.”

Year 8 pupil Ding Liu said: “It’s been fun. I’ve learnt how important teamwork is and how it’s better if you listen to each other and take turns.”
