Competitors from the four houses made delicacies, scones, tray bakes, and cupcakes. The tough job of sampling the goodies and judging the entries fell to a number of staff, including the catering team and Mrs Clare Trelfa, headmistress.

Budding entrepreneurs at Dauntsey’s School, Wiltshire, have been inspired by a talk from Jo Fairley, co-founder of Green & Black’s chocolate, who delivered the latest Mercers’ Lecture at the School.
Prior to the talk, a group of Upper School pupils took part in a question and answer session
with Jo. The discussion covered topics including the creation, development and eventual sale of Green & Black’s, her role as a Chocolate Ambassador and the importance of organic and Fairtrade ingredients to her business.
Jo then delivered her lecture entitled ‘The Rollercoaster
of Green & Black’s; and the lessons learnt along the way”. The inspiring talk highlighted the importance of putting the customer at the heart of your thinking and decision-making. She gave the audience her top tips for becoming a successful entrepreneur:
- Be brave and be daring
- Success = hard work
- Always be willing
- Be authentic
- Be kind
- Have fun – the sound of
laughter is always good!
- Find a way to deal with stress
- Find yourself a mentor
