Top marks for entrepreneurs

SLACKERS is not a word you could use to describe Coffs Harbour high school students. Continually making us proud, on top of winning academic and sporting awards, our students are now turning into entrepreneurs. Students from Coffs Harbour Christian Community and John Paul College have joined forces to work on a program to develop business skills. The project, part of the Young Achievement Australia (YAA) business skills program, provides students the opportunity to learn about running a small business by working through the process and experiencing the ups and downs. Students taking part in YAA manage a student company for 24 weeks, During that time they sell shares, manufacture or purchase products and sell them, or provide a service, and then wind up the company. The Coffs Harbour students' company is called Emperiyal and their product is jewellery. Made up of students from Years 9, 10 and 11, they will also work with mentors from the local business community.
