It’s big business at this Norwich school
Pupils at a Norwich school have been making big business plans this week.
The pupils at Taverham High School, Beech Avenue, have kicked of Norfolk's largest school tourism enterprise project in impressive style by coming up with innovative mobile demonstrations championing all that is great about East Anglia.
The school was the first to take part in this initiative which is going out to schools across Norfolk and Suffolk, and has over 70 businesses providing mentors.
The mentors helped the Taverham pupils with giving presentations, marketing and seeing an idea through.
The pupils came up with ideas including a travelling boat taking an East Anglia showcase nationwide and an airship with interactive displays that flies around the city.
