Business Studies students’ trip to SPAR
Westholme’s Lower Sixth Business Studies students were given the opportunity to visit the James Hall & Co. SPAR Distribution Centre in Preston. This fantastic trip allowed the students to witness business in action and to get a real flavour of what goes on behind the scenes of such a diverse and fascinating local business.
The girls observed logistics, warehousing marketing, sales, printing and even went on the meat production line. The directors of the company explained the business history and future plans before allowing the students to have an insight into their latest venture, G.A.P. Distribution.
Later in the year, James Hall will provide the same group of students with the oportunity to select new product ranges for them, and to monitor their success. What a fantastic opportunity!
