Students from a Medway school used their creative flair to design a musical jingle as part of an enterprise week event. The pupils from Robert Napier School in Gillingham attended a marketing workshop at the Corn Exchange where they discussed the marketing of a specific product and then recorded a musical jingle. The jingle was digitally recorded enabling the students to take away a copy of the tune at the end of the day. Three Medway secondary schools - The Robert Napier School, Gillingham, Fort Pitt Grammar School, Chatham and Rainham School for Girls, Rainham - attended the workshops and all pupils received certificates for taking part. The event was also host to a number of entrepreneurs who had started in business in the past year. They were on hand to give advice and top tips to visitors. The event was organised by Medway Education Business Partnership in conjunction with Medway Council Economic Development as part of national enterprise week.
