2016 has been a successful year for Waitakere College. This is especially seen through the hard work of business students who won big at the Young Enterprise Scheme Regional Awards. ‘Apex Goods’, run by six year 12’s received the ‘One To Watch’ Award for their outstanding effort in creating a cookie mix to introduce young children to the fun world of cooking without the hassle of measuring ingredients. The group was up against thousands of other secondary students in New Zealand as a test of their marketing, sales, and entrepreneurship skills through the journey of bringing a product/service to market.
Rose Seilala also won ‘Pasifika Entrepreneur of the Year’ with her company ‘Tough Enough’ that aimed to prevent obesity in the pacific island community in West Auckland through Zumba styled workout classes.
We expect these students to achieve larger goals this year with Tyrone Taylor, CEO of Apex Goods aiming to win a National Award. With the support of the school, we are sure these students will succeed under Waitakere College and “Become Their Best”.
