Kin­lochleven pupils mean busi­ness

The Oban Times - - Community News -

KIN­LOCHLEVEN High School pupils have been named as one of just 10 groups across the coun­try to qual­ify for a na­tional com­pe­ti­tion.

The third-year stu­dents will travel to Ed­in­burgh in Fe­bru­ary for the Coca- Cola En­ter­prises Real Busi­ness Chal­lenge, picked from 850 par­tic­i­pat­ing schools.

To qual­ify, the young­sters de­signed a drink they thought would be pop­u­lar in the busi­ness mar­ket, in a ‘Dragon’s Den’ themed com­pe­ti­tion.

One of the bud­ding en­trepreneurs, Con­nor MacKen­zie, said: ‘My group and I have en­joyed ev­ery minute of it. We have worked so hard as a group and we are all ex­cited about be­ing in the fi­nal. We don’t know what to ex­pect from the other nine schools but hope­fully we can present to the best of our abil­i­ties and make our school proud.’

Kin­lochleven head teacher, Re­becca Machin, called the news ‘a won­der­ful Christ­mas present’. She added: ‘I am al­ready proud, very proud in­deed, of our young­sters. They have done fab­u­lously well and al­ready are a huge credit to their school.’
