Young Enterprise Success

yesWe’d like to extend a huge congratulations to our Young Enterprise team Handmade Hamilton for their success at the Lanarkshire Young Enterprise finals on Thursday.

Miss Burrell and her team have been working tirelessly throughout the year selling their handmade pens & custom tote bags. At the finals on Thursday they walked away with the Marketing Award and for the first time ever brought the Company of the Year shield back to Hamilton Grammar.

YPI Final

Monday afternoon saw Hamilton Grammar host another hugely successful YPI Final, part of our S5 Citizenship programme.

The Youth and Philanthropy Initiative (YPI) is an active citizenship programme that raises awareness amongst young people about philanthropy and their local community. Each participating school, each year is responsible for directing a £3000 YPI Grant to a local charity through a unique programme of team work, research and competition. YPI Scotland is all about creativity and passion, leaving the four walls of the classroom behind, and supporting the issues young people care most about.

  • Hamilton Drop-In
  • Scottish Autism
  • The Have
  • Ups and Downs
  • Pathfinder Dogs

This year’s winning presentation was delivered by Abbie, Heather and Sarah on behalf of Hamilton Sound who provide audio news stories linked to the Hamilton Advertiser.

Thanks to Miss Lynch for running the event, and for all involved in the Citizenship inputs which prepared the whole year group to take part.
