Students at South Australia’s entrepreneurial specialist schools have been making headlines for their enterprising start-up ideas.
The teddy bears, which allow first responders to record messages for their families, provide comfort for children when their parents are working on the front line.
The nurture bears are just one example of the many enterprising ideas being worked through at entrepreneurial schools in South Australia.
The idea came from a workshop at Heathfield High, held in partnership with the Academy for Enterprising Girls, where more than 40 female students were tasked with solving a problem in their community.
Partnership between school and industry is an important feature of our entrepreneurial learning strategy.
Entrepreneurial skills are recognised globally as critical to 21st century learning and citizenship.
South Australia has 5 entrepreneurial specialist schools:
- Heathfield High School
- Seaton High School
- Banksia Park High School
- Mt Gambier High School
- Murray Bridge High School
Entrepreneurial learning is not restricted to the 5 specialist schools. The facilities, expert staff and high-quality curriculum resources developed at the schools will be shared and used across the state.
It’s just one way we’re working to take South Australia’s public education system from good to great.
