We’ll be showcasing the art of promoting entrepreneurship in school: Choithram School aims to nurture the entrepreneurial spirit of its students by providing an eclectic mix of experiential, hands-on activities which provide students with exciting real-world experiences.
There are three main channels through which we do this. The first of these is our ‘Entrepreneurship Cell’ set up in the year 2013 for students to engage in group discussions and workshops with entrepreneurs and business executives. This ignited a real interest in entrepreneurship amongst our students and has encouraged them to act on their passionate ideas through the vehicle of our Campus Company. The Campus Company enables students to set up their own company in the school while delving on the need of the product in their community.
Then in the year 2014, we began taking part in Teach A Man To Fish’ global entrepreneurship programme, the ‘School Enterprise Challenge’. This has proven to be a great way of exposing students to real-world situations which allow them to develop essential skills which they would not have the chance to develop inside the traditional classroom setting.
Over the years multiple cohorts of students have taken the School Business ‘Good Earth’ from just a small project of a few students to what is now a fully-functioning business of over 59 members that competes with other student-led businesses around the world on the Gold Level of the School Enterprise Challenge.
