Young Enterprise company Serenotey from Norwich High School for Girls will represent the East of England at the Young Enterprise National Competition in London on Tuesday 18 June 2019 after winning the regional contest.
Eight teams from across Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridge and Essex came to together at the Thomas Paine Study Centre at the University of East Anglia on Wednesday 5 June to compete, for one team to go through to the Company Programme National Final in London next week. The Company Programme empowers young people to set up and run a student business under the guidance of a business volunteer.
The YE Company Serenotey from Norwich High School for Girls beat an exceptionally tough competition. The ten sixth form students who set up the enterprise hand created and designed a bullet journal to ‘track the past, organise the present and plan for the future’.
Serenotey is one of the top 10 most accomplished student companies on the ‘YE my student company’ website regionally, nationally and internationally. Student companies are scored based on the amount of Facebook shares, unique visitors and ‘hearts’ for their store, and the turnover on the YE marketplace. Serenotey has recently expanded its product range launching a homework journal and it has plans to develop the range further.
Thank you to Serenotey’s Business Advisers Helen St Ruth and Sabina Rospedzihowska from Aviva and the judges for the evening Meral Bence from BT, Olivia Massingham from Lyreco, Grant Tuffs from Anglia Water and Joanne Robins from HSBC.
Meral Bence from BT said that she was ‘impressed with all the teams, the standard and energy was amazing – all the teams were winners’.
Winners of the National Final are invited to the International Event in Lille, France in July. The event will be opened by President Macron.
Good luck to Serenotey for the National Final in London on Tuesday 18 June 2019!
