WRED is held in September each year for up 100 primary and 100 secondary students who come from the Council areas of Port Adelaide Enfield, Charles Sturt and West Torrens. Students learn about the basics of business and business marketing from our inspiring Presenters. Our Presenters and Facilitators have such a fun experience with the attending students while generously giving up their time to help with workshops throughout the day.
The Northern Region Enterprise Day is held in July each year at the Roseworthy campus and provides an opportunity for secondary school students to learn about the basics of creating and running a business enterprise. Students are given a real insight into business with the help of inspiring business entrepreneurs who will share their personal success stories. Our facilitators and Presenters help the day run smoothly while providing great insight for the attending students.
