“SIR ALAN Sugar” paid a visit to Moor End Technology College as year seven students took part in an Apprentice-style competition.
Six finalists had to pitch their ideas to a panel of judges in the culmination of a two-day science and enterprise project.
Judges were Mary Kenworthy, treasurer, and Peter Turner, chairman of the Friends of Beaumont Park, Chris Lerigo, of David Brown Gear Systems Ltd, David Pearson of Huddersfield Pendragon Round Table, Louise Couzens-Abbott, chairman of governors and Helen Edwards, head of art, design and technology at Moor End.
“Apprentices” included Matthew Peckett who presented his team’s bird box, designed on the theme of a castle; Maariyah Anwar pitched her team’s bath fizzers and Eleanor Mutare presented her team’s travel game. They were up against Fern Jessop's kite, Aden Calvert’s family soaps and Amtashaafi Farouq's luxury cupcakes.
Maariyah Anwar was the winner and the judges were thrilled to say “You're Hired, Maariyah”, as she collected her trophy and prizes!
