Aspire Mk, Walton High’s Young Enterprise team, held a business meeting this morning with two of Milton Keynes’ aspiring local MPs. Emily Darlington and Andrew Pakes visited the school on Thursday 12 March. Both are hoping to represent Milton Keynes in parliament after the next election and they asked probing questions of the team and spoke of the need for entrepreneurs in Milton Keynes, which is certainly not in short demand in this team. The company’s project seemed to be a great success and of interest to both candidates. Hopefully the team will get the winning vote in the up and coming finals.
A mix of Year 12 and 13 A level students have recently visited the John Lewis distribution centre at Magna. Park. Sarah Parsfield who is responsible for visitor liaisons, arranged for the students to have a privileged look behind the scenes. Students experienced the process of how products are distributed using highly automated systems. The visit allows students to experience operations from a real business and apply the theory of their lessons to real world practices.
Thank you to Sarah for hosting us.
