The Year 9 Business Enterprise and Computing classes annual Market Day was a huge success and the biggest one to date
with four classes and approximately 100 students involved.
Year 9 BEC students were provided with the opportunity to run a
small business to gain a hands-on experience of what this
entails. Students were required to design, plan and execute their very own business
idea at the Market Day.
Market stalls were set in place with students providing items for sale including ice cream, rocky road, fudge,
chocolate crackles, milkshakes, ice tea, sour straps, Latin cheesecake,
cupcakes, clinker slice, meringues, cake pops, caramel slice, chocolate toss,
corn chips and salsa, chocolate covered marshmallows, brownies, blondies,
churros, lolly bags, chocolate bags, cookies, and cream puffs.
Students worked hard to compete for business, setting up
their market stalls to attractively display their stock, dressing up in costumes and uniforms in preparation for their customers.
Right on 12:40pm customers
started to appear and shortly after stalls were bombarded with hundreds of
keen customers, resulting in a level of chaos the students were not
expecting. By the end of the lunch break the students had sold their stock proving the day had clearly been a success.
Ms Anderson would like to thank the Grounds Officers for
their assistance with the marquees and table set-up, the Teacher Aides for their
help with all of the printing of signs and labels and the many staff and
students who supported the venture and also congratulate all those students who participated in the venture on a job well done.
