Congratulations to our Young Enterprise business, Belle Creations. The company won three awards for its achievements at the recent Young Enterprise graduation ceremony held in the Titanic Quarter, Belfast. This event, on 25th March 2014, featured a number of special guests and speakers.
The Young Enterprise group consisted of thirteen girls, along with their business advisor, Mr John White, and link teachers, Mrs P McCartan and Mrs S Devlin.
The girls achieved awards for: Best Social Enterprise and the Enterprise without Borders Award (received for international trading). They also achieved the most sought-after award for The Best Overall Company in the Belfast and Castlereagh area, a first for Hunterhouse!
Our Young Enterprise team will now progress to compete in the Northern Ireland finals against the winners of the five other regions in the province. The finals take place at the Gala Ball in Belfast City Hall at the beginning of May. We wish the girls the best of luck for this event.
On Friday 14th March the school golf team took part in the Northern District of the Irish Schoolgirls’ Championships, which were held on the Valley Course at Portrush Golf Club.
