Assistant principal Fintan Archer said groups of Year 5 and 6 children used their entrepreneurial skills to develop, design and market a product or service for the event.

Maker, Deegan, Deng, Jook and Ashton.

“There was a considerable amount of work completed in class whereby the children had to complete a number of pre-activities, costings and projected outcomes,” he said.

“They also examined techniques to enhance the marketability of their products by reducing the price, two-for-one offers, special 30-minute time periods, spruiking their products while the event was in progress.”

Neve, Travis, Che, Dante and Alilic.

Mr Archer said the students presented their products and services to the rest of the school at a gala day on November 16.

“The smile on all of the children’s faces, both stall holders and customers attested to the success of the event,” he said.

“Some of the stalls included a home-grown petting zoo, food stalls, games and skills stalls, face painting, craft stall (and) white elephant stall.”

After the event, the groups evaluated the success of their products and services and prepared presentations for their classmates.
