Club Kidprenuer Launch

9/08/2013
​Kidpreneur launched by Mayor Graham Quirk along with Councillor Vicki Howard
​Our Year 6/7 class was very excited and honoured to host the launch of the Club Kidpreneur, “Business in a Backpack” Launch on Wednesday. Opening the launch was Lord Mayor, Graham Quirk, along with Councillor Vicki Howard and Kidpreneur CEO, Graham Berman. Club Kidpreneur is a social enterprise that provides an opportunity for primary aged students to start and sustain their own micro-enterprise. The $50 Challenge is a nation-wide competition in which students are supplied with  a “Business in a Backpack” , that provides students with the raw materials and resources to build their own business, the profits of which are donated to a charity. The Brisbane City Council has decide to sponsor the program in Brisbane, the first council in Australia to get behind the initiative. Our Year 6/7 students have just started their business enterprises this week, and will  be working on their projects over the next several weeks. Make sure you look out  for the story on the Channel 9 news this weekend!
