Pupils’ acumen will be tested overseas


Timaru musician Caitlin Bradley has won a trip to Singapore for her debut EP project.

The Roncalli College pupil recorded and released a five-track album earlier this year as part of the Young Enterprise Scheme (Yes) business challenge.

The 17-year-old was named the scheme’s South Canterbury regional champion in November for her business – and performance name – Caitlin Joy.

She will be one of 10 Yes pupils from around New Zealand who will take part in a week-long business challenge programme in Singapore next month.

Mountainview High School pupil Zoe Harding (17) is also set to head overseas with Yes next month, after winning a trip to Colombia.

She was nominated to be one of 24 school pupils to travel to South America at the Wellington for Entrepreneurs In Action event in July.

Her bath bomb project – with classmates Matthew Andreassend and Lauren Cowan – won her the trip to Wellington. Other groups will go to Brazil or Chile.jordan release dateNike
