“Connect” and “Survivalists,” two teams from Hamilton Grammar School recently battled it out at the Young Enterprise Lanarkshire finals

In the end the Survivalists were successful attaining the ‘Product Innovation’ award and the ‘Christmas Trade Stand’ award at the Lanarkshire finals. Receiving these awards has further enhanced the experience for the team of youngsters.

Connect also had great success this year, selling their personalised Jigsaws not only making great profit but more importantly using their product in local care homes to connect Alzheimer’s and Dementia sufferers with their families.

The initiative from Young Enterprise allows youngsters the opportunity to set up and run their own business gaining entrepreneurial experience thanks to the Company Programme.

Directors Lucy Grenfell & Matthew Miller, said “Young Enterprise was so much more successful than any of us had anticipated it would be. It gave us an opportunity to innovate and put many of our own business ideas into practice and gave us an insight into how businesses trade and challenged us to solve problems together as a team. I would recommend future pupils to get involved!”

South Lanarkshire Dance Success

On Wednesday 21st February 17 schools (280 pupils) competed at the annual South Lanarkshire Dance Competition. Hamilton Grammar entered a team for the S1-3 category and a senior team. The competition is growing year in, year out and pupils across the authority continue to raise the bar.

Our S1-3 team performed a contemporary dance on mental health and our seniors’ theme was girl power. Both teams worked very hard to prepare for the show, rehearsing 4 times a week.

We are extremely pleased to announce that our S1-3 team won 1st place in their individual contemporary category and 1st place overall from hip hop, contemporary and mixed style. It was also a great effort from our seniors who performed an amazing routine, although not placing. Well done to all involved!
