Young Enterprise Success!

Our Young Enterprise company, Vedic Vibes, won the Newport and Monmouthshire Area finals yesterday and will now go onto represent the region in the Welsh finals, to be held in June at the Millennium Centre. The group consists of eight students from Year 12 and have been selling their beautifully hand decorated henna candle products throughout the year.

 

There were 7 teams competing yesterday; 2 from Rougemont, 2 from Haberdashers Monmouth Girls, 1 from Monmouth Boys and 1 from King Henry VIII in Abergavenny. And, of course Duffryn were there not only to win but to also defend our title as being last year’s area winners!

 

Our team picked up the award for Best Trade Stand and Interview before being named the overall winners of the whole competition.  They narrowly missed out on winning the other awards on offer by just 2 or 3 marks.  They have some preparation work to do before the Welsh finals but are very excited about this opportunity.

 

A huge congratulations to our team:
