Last week a group of entrepreneurial Year 10 students participated in the Mindshop Excellence Program. This wonderful program delivered in partnership with Commerce Ballarat and local businesses provides an invaluable learning opportunity for future young leaders, where students are placed within a local company and given a real industry problem to solve.
Acting as ‘company executives’ for the week, our Loreto students were placed with the Ballarat Turf Club. Their problem to resolve was, “How does the Ballarat Turf Club attract a younger demographic to support special race day events?”
Our students learned powerful problem-solving tools to help them explore and create solutions to the problem, which are then presented to the company and business leaders and invited guests.
Congratulations to our students, Annaliese Young, Lucy Eales, Jasmin Hayes, Mia Gartside, Ava Connally, and Bridie Newman on their participation and wonderful presentation on Friday. Thank you to Mindshop Excellence, Commerce Ballarat and the participating local businesses that made this opportunity possible once again for our students, following a two-year hiatus due to Covid.
