Trinity Academy students took part in a business challenge with a banking giant.
Eighteen year eight academy students visited Lloyds Banking Group, Trinity Road, Halifax, to present to a local printer.
The students, who collaborated in groups of three, had previously designed a ticket and poster for an October local charity event.
Trinity pupils then pitched their designs to a local printer in the quest to secure ticket and poster production free of charge.
The project was designed and delivered by a LBG team, James Tighe and Gareth Ewing, with the co-operation and participation of Rob Marsh vice principal of Trinity, as well as academy students.
Mr Marsh said: “The presentations at the academy and at the bank in front of business people really tested their confidence, resolve and desire to succeed. The students learned a lot about the world of work and the pressure of deadlines, this compliments what they do at the academy in their studies and brings a realism to their work.”
Business connector Gareth Ewing said: “Building partnerships between schools and the business community is critical as it helps to bridge the gap between education and employment.”
