Battle of the Business Assistants

March 5, 2019

Georgina McHugh and Bridie Cartwright from St Joseph’s Catholic College East Gosford took out the top prize at the inaugural Battle of the Business Assistants competition in November.

Seven teams from St Joseph’s, St Peter’s Catholic College Tuggerah and Mackillop Catholic College Warnervale took part in the competition which was held at St Peter’s.

Each team of two was given a number of real-world business tasks to complete within three hours.

Teams from Mackillop and St Peter’s were in joint second place, while another team from St Peter’s took out third place.

Phil Cox, the Education Officer in Secondary Vocational Learning and Curriculum from the Catholic Schools Office, said the day would not have been possible without the hard work of the Business Services teachers who judged the competition and prepared students with enterprise skills.
