2024 Young Business Leaders 8-Week Program Finale | Breakfast Showcase & Two Winners

2024 Young Business Leaders 8-Week Program Finale | Breakfast Showcase & Two Winners

On Thursday morning, our select group of entrepreneurially-minded Canterbury students were involved in the Breakfast Showcase Finale, for their eight-week Young Business Leaders Program hosted by Club Beenleigh.

This Breakfast Showcase provided an opportunity for our young business students to advertise and pitch their products, services and ideas to the wider Logan community, parents, carers and other schools’ business students.

After a buffet breakfast, Maddie Panther from BOP Industries – the agency which oversaw the overall program, announced the category winners judged from the showcase stalls.

So we are excited to announce that Canterbury College received two awards.

Bear from Artbands received the award for Best Branding with his customised exercise watchbands.

Dekota from Delou received the award for Most Innovative Idea with her specialised mini loofah tubes, containing their own applicator brush and solution.

It was a fantastic morning celebrating the efforts and achievements of our Young Business Leaders, who have worked extremely hard on their commercial creations throughout Term 2.

The Young Business Leaders Program is organised by BOP Industries with the support of event partner the Beenleigh Yatala Junior Chamber of Commerce, and event sponsors Bendigo Bank, Quota Beenleigh Inc, the Rotary Club of Beenleigh, Logan City Council, Logan Office of Economic Development and new Logan Mayor Jon Raven.

We look forward to seeing how these businesses actually develop and grow in the real world into the future, along with the entrepreneurial mindsets of these motivated Senior School students.

Nothing like some footy with your fine music…

Our Junior Singers, All Star Strings and Year 3 Strings ensembles performed on-stage.

Year 10 Business Start-Up Showcase | Event Summary & Photo Gallery

Year 10 Business Start-Up Showcase | Event Summary & Photo Gallery

This morning, our Year 10 Start-Up Business classes hosted an entrepreneurial showcase event on our Tech Deck, displaying their innovative business concepts, products and services to the Canterbury Community at their presentation tables.

The 14 start-up businesses included: the Afro Hoods clothing line, Ashan Industries’ PEETA neurodiverse communicator app, Down Undies clothing, JAEL WEAR clothing, Just For You, Kindi Buds, Paws and Pages children’s books, Port-A-Line, Shine Cases, SJ Books, The Spooly Brush, Top Towels, Tuff Clothing and WRLD Clothing.

The showcase commenced with two student business presentations, then an insightful panel discussion with three successful contemporary entrepreneurs – Mr Peter Maynard from CyberMetrix, Gabriel Matt from Wilak Media and Alyssa Burns from Future Anything, who shared their expertise, good and bad experiences, journey learnings and business strategies with our entrepreneurial students.

They told our captivated school audience to understand their ‘problem solution’ clearly, to be truly passionate about their idea, to never give up on their business pursuits, and to keep researching on Google and YouTube and by chatting with suppliers – where all the answers can be found via those entrepreneurial pioneers who went before them.

Our panel added that being young was a ‘superpower’, as business people generally like to support young students who remind them of their business-oriented younger selves just starting out.

And also to treat failures as inevitable learning steps and merely lessons to absorb on the journey to eventual commercial and social success.

We wish our young entrepreneurs the best with their business pursuits.

A video covering the different Year 10 business ventures in depth will be published soon…

Year 12 Visual Art Workshop: Visiting Artist Carolyn V Watson | Photo Gallery

Today our Year 12 Visual Art classes welcomed multi-award-winning artist Carolyn V Watson.

During this VIP guest-led workshop, students learned to transform wire and repurposed materials of little or no significant value, into something of greater worth or artistic enjoyment.

They also experimented with melted beeswax to see how it strengthens and stiffens artwork elements.

Check out Carolyn’s interesting and unusual assortment of artworks and creative materials.
