DOUGLAS Academy held its second Enterprise Showcase which has become a definite fixture in the school calendar.

The purpose of the event is to celebrate the enterprising work undertaken by pupils throughout the school.

Pupils and staff from all year groups were invited to host a display stand and show off their good work.

This year there were around 20 displays, from the school’s Local History Group to Eco-Schools.

Pupils on the Amnesty International stand were raising awareness of injustices in the world, while other pupils were offering visitors the chance to try the Chopstick Challenge!

The Duke of Edinburgh display was a popular stand with a group erecting a tent and they allowed pupils to try out their storm shelter.

The school welcomed 120 Primary seven pupils from other schools such as Craigdhu Primary. They tried out a number of different activities.

They then had something to eat before completing a “fruitylicious” quiz and art competition.

Sixth year pupils organised a video diary and interviewed Primary seven pupils about their experience.
