Through this project, stakeholders work alongside each other to develop business leaders of tomorrow, -Today!.

The Trust’s CEO, Paul Muller, says “The Plantation Business Challenge is an opportunity for students, families and us to invest in their futures. The returns for students are personal gain in further education and hopefully a business of their own in the future.”

The Plantation Business Challenge begins with a family evening for the students, parents and stakeholders to become familiar with each other.
On the evening encouragement from guest speakers -who are business owners themselves, are specifically chosen for the cause. This takes place on the 20th September 2006. Parents and senior students will be informed of what they can expect over the week beginning 25th – 29th September 2006.
