On the 1st of December, our annual Enterprise Fair took place and was an enjoyable and successful day for everyone at Broughton. As always, there was a variety of stalls ranging from cakes to cards; a try on the game consoles to doughnuts; hotdogs to hair dying and the excited atmosphere was second to none.
The students, involved put in a lot of time and effort to make this day a success. Many of the students were ecstatic at the busy crowds and number of sales- Pria Dobney (8B) said ‘I think today has gone really well, we’ve almost sold out’ and her two team mates Lucy Wade (8C) and Sarah Vali (8C) both agreed that they had really enjoyed themselves and would definitely do it again. Another team who were very happy with the success of their chocolate truffle, hot chocolate and cake stall, were Zak Longstaff (9C), Freddi Dewhurst (9B) and Marcus Ball (9H) who all said that they had no time to spare, to scoff, since they were always so busy!
It’s not just the students who put in the effort; the staffs at Broughton also were committed to making sure everybody enjoyed themselves. Mrs Donleavy, who was in charge of the fair declared ‘It is fantastic to see so many young entrepreneurs participating and enjoying their day’ whilst Mr Taylor said that the fair reminded him of the Christmas markets in Germany (but without the smell of German food in the air!).
Overall, the Enterprise Fair was, yet again, one of the highlights of our school year and encouraged team work and skill between the students at Broughton. A well deserved thank you to all the teachers who gave their time to help and organise this day, and not forgetting the hard working students themselves!

The Enterprise Fair ran very smoothly and you could tell that everybody was enjoying it because of how full up the Sports Hall was. There was a lots of different stalls varying from sweet stalls and jewerly stalls to ball throwing stalls.
There were teachers walking around the Sports Hall checking on different stalls or simply buying for themselves. We raised lots of money for BBEC and for ourselves as well. I think it was all a very good lesson on Bussiness but very fun at the same time.
