East meets west in busi­ness visit

Macclesfield Express - - HEART OF THE COMMUNITY -

STU­DENTS at All Hal­lows Catholic Col­lege wel­comed vis­i­tors from Korea to show them how the school op­er­ates.

The school, which spe­cialises in busi­ness en­ter­prise education, was se­lected by The Co-op­er­a­tive Col­lege to share its val­ues and ideas with the guests from Korea, and wel­comed a party of 10 vis­i­tors to­gether with a trans­la­tor.

Jane Lynch, fac­ulty leader in En­ter­prise at the col­lege, or­gan­ised a packed pro­gramme for the vis­i­tors.

Stu­dents Oliver Franklin and Do­minic Cook led a tour of the out­door en­ter­prises, while James Brad­bury worked with his team of as­sis­tants to give them an in­sight into the sta­tionery retail func­tion of the col­lege and The Stalls Pro­ject. Sixth Form stu­dents Megan Royle and Harry Jaques joined as they toured the Busi­ness and En­ter­prise class­rooms, meet­ing stu­dents from year eight and year 12.

Tony Billings, col­lege prin­ci­pal, said: “We re­ally value our links with the Co-op­er­a­tive col­lege and a sense of be­ing part of an in­ter­na­tional global com­mu­nity is re­ally im­por­tant for our stu­dents learn­ing, ca­reer prospects and as­pi­ra­tions.”
