CGHS Publication —

This year's Business Studies course is looking for business mentors or volunteers.

If you think this a way you could contribute to the school community and want to know more follow the link http://youngenterprise.org.nz/ and have a look at the philosophy of the YES scheme.

The girls go through all the stages of product design, manufacturing and marketing of a product with a focus on innovation, sustainability and potential profitability.

Your role may be an advisor, facilitator, motivator or all three as you guide the girls to success. The learning does not have to be all one way, you might even be surprised what you get out of it yourself!

"I get great satisfaction out of being a Mentor, especially when I see the untainted ideas coming forward on how or what they have to make a successful business. As I am of an older generation it is great to see the enthusiasm and energy, especially when they have come up with an idea and know how they are going to make it all work, and then seeing how they solve each problem as it arises."

- Bill Smale, Mentor, Lion Foundation Young Enterprise Scheme

If you can offer any of your skills to help our girls then please contact the business studies teacher, Andrea James, to register your interest. jaa@cghs.school.nz
