S6 Enterprise Group

Attached is a picture of the S6 young enterprise group and their work

Their business is called Eternal and they laser etch designs on to glass.

At Christmas time they laser etced various Christmas designs on to tea light holders. They attended various craft fayres around Renfrewshire where their tea lights were very popular.

They also attended a trade fayre at Soar @ Braehead where they competed against various schools in the region. They almost sold out of stock at Soar. The judges were very impressed with their product and their display stand.

They are currently working hard towards the Young enterprise final competition in March
