STUDENTS from Renfrew High School have taken part in an Apprentice-style challenge at intu Braehead.

The third year pupils were tasked with coming up with an idea for an event for 12 to 16-year-olds which could be staged at the retail and leisure destination, as well as developing a promotional campaign to attract customers.

They spent two days at intu Braehead and, just like the TV show featuring Lord Alan Sugar, were split into two teams competing for the top prize.

The group calling themselves ‘The Dream Team’ opted for a series of themed music events, while rivals ‘Quality Business’ pitched the idea of Sumo Wipeout, which would see competitors in sumo wrestling suits tackling an obstacle course.

Quality Business was named the winner, as its ideas to attract customers included giving 10 per cent of the proceeds to the Water Aid charity.

The next stage is for both teams to turn the Sumo Wipeout idea into reality, with the event being held later this year.
