Kilmarnock Academy Pupils Driving an Enterprising Economy

Back to school was top of the agenda this week when Marie visited her former school Kilmarnock Academy to review the senior pupils new business ideas .

Marie said, 'This year has been an amazing year for Kilmarnock Academy with continued emphasis on entrepreneurship and how by being creative , whilst implementing the core education subjects enterprising businesses are being created .

Over the last three years I have witnessed a growing in confidence in pupils and a belief it's them who can and will create a revitalized economy locally and nationally with a 'Can Do Attitude'.

I congratulate the teachers and East Ayrshire Council for laying the foundations through their Business Leaders Program in Schools
and look forward to 2016 with more positive outcomes .

I would urge all businesses leaders to get behind our fantastic schools not just in Ayrshire but Scotland by giving advice,sponsorship or work placements to help create Scotland's future entrepreneurs .
