The Grade 7s held their Entrepreneurs Day on Friday, 15 September. There was great excitement as the day dawned and the stalls were set up. Although there was the occasional drizzle, nothing could dampen the spirits of the 115 Grade 7s who were eager to make money.
Products ranged from sweet treats, like fudge, cupcakes and condensed milk syringes, to home-made products like foam bubble makers. There were also various games and activities like air-soft shooting and the always popular water-balloon throwing.
We are proud to report that no group made a loss this year! Many Grade 7s walked away with impressive profits, already planning how they were going to spend their money. Thanks to this EMS Project, many of them have had a taste of running a small business: working out unit costs, drawing up a business plan, conducting surveys, designing adverts and flyers and many more skills which will stand them in good stead in the future.
Well done to all the teachers who assisted them, the Grade 1 - 6 children who supported them by buying at the stalls, but mostly to the class of 2017 for a most successful Entrepreneurs Day!
