Wetherby High School Young Enterprise students successfully developed a starter package aimed at children to help them to create a ‘bee friendly’ garden. It was called the ‘Weather Bees’ and included a recycled plant pot, soil, bee mix seed ball, honey and an educational sheet. The product and its development plans were submitted for a Young Enterprise award.
The final judging took place online on 6th May 2020 with the students from Wetherby High Schools facing tough competition from across Yorkshire.
The school’s Business and Economics teacher, Amy Jennings, said “the judges really liked our idea because it went above and beyond in terms of being environmentally friendly. They liked the fact that we had developed close connections across Wetherby and also that all elements of the product were eco-friendly and sustainable. Because of this, we managed to win 'The Sustainability Award' for the second year running.
The students have been on a massive journey and they have made so much progress throughout which they can take with them into future careers. However, it is important to note that their success would not have been made possible without the help of the Wetherby Lions.”
Wetherby Lions have supported Wetherby High School students to consecutive awards over the past two years by funding entry to this competition. In addition, the students gained valuable retail experience by means of stalls provided at the Lions Dickensian Christmas Markets and benefited from support by individual Lions.
