The Exeloo Design Challenge is coming back!

In Term 1, Craig Van Asch, Group Sales and Marketing Manager for Exeloo Limited, spoke to the Year 10 business class about his extensive experience in international trade marketing for key New Zealand export businesses. As part of the students’ study into global business, Craig issued a homework challenge for completion by the end of Term 2, with a very generous prize up for grabs.

The Exeloo Design Challenge required students to review the full product range of Exeloo automated toilet solutions, and prepare a business proposal for an Exeloo toilet, for Onehunga High School. Students had to identify and justify the location of the toilets, brainstorm customer needs and from that determine unique features and a full design (artwork and build) of the interior and exterior of the toilet block.

From a field of over twenty submissions, the business school teachers selected a short list of five student entries for Craig and the Exeloo team to determine a winner. The Exeloo factory team narrowed them down to two finalists and after much anticipation, the awards were presented at a Year 10 assembly:

First prize – $50 gift voucher – was awarded to Seneti Dawber 10KU.

Second prize - $30 gift voucher – was awarded to Faith Fineanganofo 10UP.

Runner up certificates were also awarded to Lovely Alipate 10TH, and to Kristin Williams 10CP and Desiree Scanlan 10CP for their joint entry.

Craig and the Exeloo team were thoroughly impressed with the students’ work, generously providing detailed feedback on the first and second prize entries, and commenting that “Overall it was a fantastic chance for us to see the pride, which the young people of Onehunga High School have for their school and their community.”

 The Onehunga High Business School is indebted to companies like Exeloo, who provide inspiring projects and engagement opportunities for our students. We are delighted to be welcoming Craig back into the second semester Year 10 business class in Term 4.
