' Sellafield Ltd was delighted to support the pupils of Arlecdon school through their Bright Stars challenge. Encouraging entrepreneurial thinking at such an early age is an excellent way to introduce students to a business environment whilst raising confidence levels and aspirations. The team worked extremely hard and the success of the evening proved how well organised and professional the children had ran the project. I was very proud of each and everyone of them. '
Corrin Nichols, Sellafield Ltd education officer

' This was the first year that we have been involved with the Bright Stars challenge and we will definitely do so again. The support we received from both the Centre for Leadership Performance but most of all Sellafield Ltd has been excellent. The children developed their skills and expertise over the preparation period. They worked together as a team, playing to their strengths and working to key deadlines. The fashion show event itself, was a real highlight. Our local community was very generous and we are thrilled to be able to donate to Hospice at Home, this was the charity the children themselves choose. With the winnings from the competition we have decided to give this back to the community and would like to put it towards the purchase of a defibrillator machine. We know that if someone in our local community has a heart attack or similar issue, at the moment, it is several miles to the nearest machine and may take a long time for an ambulance to arrive. If we are able to generate the necessary funds to purchase a machine for school, we may be able to save a life one day. '
Ms Wendy Figes, Executive Head teacher at Arlecdon Primary School

About Bright Stars 2015

Raising the aspiration and confidence of
Cumbria's young people is a vital part of the
CfLP's work. The Centre works with leaders
already in place to further develop their
leadership skills but also we believe that
supporting the talents of all our young
people is vital for the future economy
here in Cumbria.

The Bright Stars challenge is a competition
aimed at primary school children across
Cumbria and the idea of the challenge is to
engage children with leadership and entrepreneurship,
at a very young age, in an accessible and fun way whilst inspiring
and helping kids develop, nurture and preserve their own creative confidence.
