Dragon’s Den War in Wendover School
Wendover School pupils have held another ‘Dragon’s Den’ competition. The children were asked to make a business, school, holiday home or venue or any other busines they could sell on by pitching it to school governors and other invited judges, one being Flt Lt Sarah Hindley, OC Operations from Haltons Airfield. All the exhibits were made by the children themselves out of papermache, empty food containers and painted to look the part.
The afternoon started with the pupils showing their creations to the judges, explaining how they intended to make money from them. Next the judges sat as a panel while they were persuaded which creation to put money into.
Runner up was the Super Mall, a massive shopping complex with numerous leisure facilities, including a Doggie Training and Dancing centre, but the outright winner, as agreed by all the judges, was The Dragons Tail, an historical building in Wales in a village called Llanfairpwllgwngyllgogerychwyrndropwillantysiliogogogoch. It was chosen due to the details the group had worked on to make it sound plausible and their enthusiasm to sell it to the judges.
Flt Lt Hindley said: All of the exhibits were well thought out and appealed for different reasons but the Dragons Tail had a lot of thought put in to it with costings etc and information about how they would repay the Dragons back for their investment.
