STUDENTS from two Royston schools have been given lessons about the world of business.
More than 150 Year 9 students at The Meridian School were involved in an enterprise workshop, while at Roysia Middle School, Year 5 pupils were challenged to explore the relationships between people, business and government in the economy today.
Both workshops were organised by Hertfordshire Young Enterprise and funded by county councillors Fiona Hill and Tony Hunter, along with local firms.
Jane Shipley, from Young Enterprise, said: “We think it is essential that students gain an early awareness of the business world and of the opportunities that it offers.
“The children had to consider the skills and qualities required in the modern workplace, including interviewing volunteers from Johnson Matthey.
