This week, Whitefriars has entered two teams of entrepreneurial students from Year 9 into a week long online Challenge to create and showcase their own business ideas.

The two teams include the following students:

Team 1

  • Ollie Boyd Clark

  • Alex Boscariol
  • Riley Costello

Team 2 

  • John Wilton
  • Abraham Arnaud
  • Bill Donaldson
  • Lewis Cameron
  • Joseph Li-Sculli
  • Reinhardt Lategan

The Whitefriars Teams have entered the Challenge along with up to 100 other students from Victorian and Tasmanian schools.

Not only are students given an opportunity to showcase their entrepreneurial skills, but they also learnt useful skills around:

  • Working in a collaborative team environment
  • Budgeting
  • Handling stress
  • Planning
  • Creativity
  • Critical thinking
  • Public speaking
