The third Annual National Secondary School Entrepreneurship Competition, which sees many schools across Trinidad and Tobago go head to head in the virtual business arena, came to an end on November 20, 2019.
Corpus Christi College entered two teams, comprising Form Four students. Team One consisted of Lyshelle Bartlette, Tericia Allan, Kendra Richardson, Tia Marie Gooding and Eleisha Matthews, while Team Two consisted of Devani Beharrylal, Anais Gopaul, Jordan Belfon, Lillian Sydney and Lemika Sydney.
They were joined by 125 other teams, mostly made up of Form Five and Form Six students, to compete for six weeks while being separated in divisions of eight.
Team Two won their division, earning them 10 per cent scholarships to Arthur Lok Jack, and placed 22nd overall. Although Team One placed second in their division, they were able to place 4th overall, making Corpus Christi College, “the only school to have placed in the top 5 every year since the competition commenced in 2017,” according to David Stone, one of the founders of the competition.
The coach of the two Corpus Christi College teams, David-Lee Skinner- Ballantyne, also won an individual award for the most determined teacher throughout the competition.
As a result of the hard work and sacrifices made by these students, Corpus Christi College continues to have more trophies in this competition than any other school, cementing its place as one of the leading secondary schools in Business Education.
