Brains for business

PUPILS from two southside schools celebrated wins at the Glasgow heat of the Young Enterprise Scotland awards.

Last week, The Extra reported that St Ninian’s swept the board at the Renfrewshire heat, bringing home five of seven trophies and securing a place at the nationwide final.

The Glasgow competition followed, and both Hutchesons grammar school and Craigholme school picked up accolades for their enterprising companies.

Craigholme’s Inspired team was presented with the discussion and feedback award, as well as coming top in the best presentation category ahead of two groups from Kelvinside Academy. Hutchy’s group – named Luxeme – secured the marketing award.

Unfortunately, both lost out on a place in the final to the westend’s Glasgow Academy – a team which will now go head to head with the St Ninian’s business group at the June 18 final.
