On 30th March 2017 our Head Girl, Shakira, attended the Big Ideas Celebrated Awards (ages 16 – 24) at the Cardiff City Stadium. She had to do a pitch regarding her homelessness campaign in front of five judges and against nine other groups of students from various high schools and universities.
Competition was fierce with other pitches including business ideas ranging from make–up tutorials to sports massage therapy.
Shakira was nominated in three categories: the Social Impact Award, Gwbor Ian Bennett Award and the Overall Best Business Idea Award(Sixth Form). She was runner up in the Social Impact and Gwbor Ian Bennett categories and won the Overall Best Business Idea Award (Sixth Form).
