Tommy the turtle

​Last week a number of our girls in Years 5 and 6 attended the ‘Young Change Agents Workshop” which aimed to teach them how to be social entrepreneurs over a three day workshop.

The workshop was held at Corinda State High School and the girls learnt about Social Enterprise where they brainstormed concepts, researched their topic, developed their business and pitched their idea to a judging panel. They were up against many other groups including a group of teachers and two groups of High School students. The girls were very excited to win the pitch against the other teams with their ‘Tommy the Turtle’ business. Congratulations to the girls for their exceptional work. One of the girls, Neave, writes her thoughts
about the day below.

Our Entrepreneurs Experience
Our group was named the "Wise Chicken Nuggets" and the members were: Neave, Addison, Emma and Carmen. We were all offered this wonderful opportunity to attend this awesome experience. On the first day we created a bike using: pipe
cleaners, paddle pop sticks, match sticks, plasticine, tape and straws. Then we created a poster with three major problems in our community. We then chose one problem to base a number of questions on -we chose littering. On our second day we answered these questions which helped us plan our business: the purpose, the customers, the problem, the alternatives, the solution, the key metrics, the high level concept and the unfair advantage. On the third day we created a PowerPoint on Tommy the Turtle and came first!
