Celebrating young entrepreneurs – the event aims to encourage and promote business-minded Centralians.
CPU Senior High School celebrated Entrepreneurship Week from March 4 to 8, 2019. Twenty-one (21) colorful booths were installed at the Half Moon Drive. The decorated booths sold a variety of meals, snacks, and drinks. The objective of the week-long activity is for the students to apply the business plan that they developed in their Entrepreneurship subject.
Abdullah Essa Obordo, a Filipino-Kuwaiti national and a student of the University Senior High School, displayed his skills in preparing shawarma at their section’s booth. He even offered some visitors a small sample of their product. Abdullah observes, “I enjoyed learning more about selling in our entrepreneurship class.” He adds, “I was really inspired to include [shawarma in this event].”
Angelo Dalumpines, Obordo’s classmate, stressed the importance of cooperation. He pointed out the growing inclination of the students towards business. The Senior High School entrepreneurship activities in the campus started with Entrepreneurship Week in 2017, Dalumpines said.
The students will be graded according to how they implemented the business plan (how they ran the business) and how they performed their assigned tasks individually as assessed by their group mates.
