ye20181Walton High’s Young enterprise group has won the Milton Keynes local competition for the third year running!  Certificates were awarded for the best overall product as well as winning a number of other award categories.

Initially, thirteen Year 11 students registered their company in September 2017. After conducting market research, students settled on a product called the ‘U Card’. The purpose of the card is to make a positive impact on people’s lives by solving daily challenges and reminding people about important dates. The ‘U’ card stands for ‘help u’, ‘remind u’ and ‘made for u’. Three variations of the U card were developed: a car card for vehicle owners with MOT and insurance dates, a lost person card to keep young children and the elderly safe and thirdly, a medical card for people with rare medical conditions.

ye20182Students took part in the Milton Keynes trade fair where they sold to the general public and made several hundreds of pounds profit. Students have also held meetings with leading charities such as Age UK and Macintyre who were interested in the products. Students Maisie Cherry and Amy Cox commented that, “our proudest achievement was winning overall best company at the Milton Keynes finals which has allowed us to advance through to the County finals on 4 May. We are also very grateful to Miss East who has helped and guided us in the creation of our business and for making it a once in a lifetime experience!”

Sports Day at Walton High will be on Tuesday 19th June. In case of bad weather, it will be necessary to move this to the reserve date of Tuesday 19th June.

The format of our Sports Day has changed this year. The heats will already have been run during PE lessons in advance of this date. All finals will be run on Sports Day.

The Finals will include students from both Walnut Tree and Brooklands campuses and will commence at 12noon. It is anticipated that Sports Day will have finished by 3pm.

Inevitably, residents may experience some noise from the PA system, but speakers will face away from residential buildings and noise will be kept to a minimum. Many apologies in advance for any inconvenience caused.

Student expectations:

* Everyone in full PE kit

* Bring a drink of water

* Wear a sun hat

* Use sun tan lotion
