Business team rewarded for excellence in creative thinking

Congratulations to the four Year 13 Business groups  (featured in a previous edition of Te Reo o Te Roto) who qualified for the North Auckland YES Regional Finals which was held remotely on Wednesday 3 November.

The students were required to deliver a 5-minute presentation outlining their business in terms of validation of product, innovation, sustainability, marketing and sales, and financial viability. The teams pitched to a panel of judges to see who best met the criteria to become the Regional Champion.

The students involved can all be congratulated on their success to have qualified in this prestigious competition.

We are pleased to announce that Wicker Waver (Chakra Candles) won an Award for Excellence in Creative Thinking. Congratulations to (pictured top from left with some of the candles) Michelle Farrell (CEO), Cate Moyle (Finance), Trixie Andrew (Production) and Samara Khan (Marketing). Michelle and Samara are in Year 12, while Cate and Trixie are Year 13. The presentation skills of the team stood out to the judges along, with the innovative design of their product.
