Regional Company of the YEAR

06 Nov Regional Company of the YEAR

Villa Maria College Young Enterprise Scheme has had huge success this year.

The standout team was Revive 15 who took out the Regional Prize for the Business Presentation and have just been announced as the Canterbury Regional Young Enterprise Award for company of the year!

Revive 15 sells caramel fudge whilst helping fundraise for St John and giving vital CPR information to customers in the form of a business card to keep in their wallet or purse.

They will now have to compete against the other regions in the National Awards in Wellington on 9 December.

Teacher in Charge, Rachel Sherry says: “We are very proud of the girls winning the Regional award given it is our first year competing.  They have worked extremely hard and overcome a number of obstacles and are very worthy recipients. They have learnt to turn something which started in their imaginations into reality and have created a product that not only tastes good and sells well, but also serves our community. This is true Mercy in action.”
