Students pursue passion for Market Day

It’s incredible to see what a bunch of Year 5 students can do with a whole lot of passion and a ten-dollar note. From recycled school uniform scrunchies and pom-pom pets to games stalls and more, students will host their Market Day this Wednesday, November 20 to showcase their own business as part of their Entrepreneurship program.

The event will see students use their business skills acquired throughout the unit to bring their market stall to life and sell their products to other students, staff and parents of the School.

Students have had to work in pairs with a budget of $10 each to develop a business plan, coordinate the planning, design and creation of the product including logo design, marketing and promotion ahead of the Market Day tomorrow.

Sunshine Coast Grammar School Dean of Primary (Year 3-6), Mr Craig Angel said that the Entrepreneurship unit aims to provide students with the opportunity to experience the independence of being a business owner while allowing them to demonstrate their leadership and learn from their peers.

“There is a lot for the students to consider when setting up their small businesses but they have been carefully guided through the process to ensure life-long skills are developed and special memories are created,” said Mr Angel.

“We are excited to see what the students have come up with and how they have transferred their knowledge into creating a successful small business.”

All funds raised from the Market Day will go towards the School’s community service program, Grammar Helping Hands.
