In conjunction with Advance Queensland, Somerset College is conducting its inaugural Celebration of Entrepreneurship in Week Two, Term Four. This Celebration will deliver a program to support the growth of entrepreneurial skills among Somerset College students.
The Entrepreneurship initiative will provide students with the knowledge, networks and hands-on experience to help them launch their own enterprises both now and in the future. We are very excited about bringing this exciting opportunity to the Somerset College community.
The Festival runs over two days, on 10 and 11 October and will involve many of our Year 10 students operating business stalls to sell their products to the community. It will also involve our Year 6 Kidpreneurs selling their products to the community. Our key note speaker will be Steve Baxter from River City Labs and the television program Shark Tank.
