The Students ‘enterprise event titled ‘THE MARKET DAY’ took place on the 2nd to 7th of February, 2018 among the students in Year 8 at the Anthony campus.
Each student was placed in a group to come up with their business name including business logo, slogan, identify a product (catering related) and to create posters to be pasted in all the nooks and crannies of the school community.
The group members were given responsibilities to select their CEO, Marketing, finance, sales and publicity managers respectively. Each of the stands was beautifully decorated by each group to attract patronage.
On the same day, the students were timed for 1 hour and 40 minutes for the preparation of their products and its packaging in the Life science room. The recess period of 30 minutes was allocated for the actual sales.
The students were assessed on the following criteria:
- Timeliness and hygiene in the course of preparation
- Marketing strategies employed
- Team work and collaboration
- Product packaging
In conclusion, the students were given a booklet on Business plan to work on based on the enterprise event. The profits realised are to be ploughed back into the business for subsequent enterprise projects in Term 3 as their working capital.
