Students utilise small business know-how for Christmas appeal
ON TUESDAY, November 7, Years 3/4 classes had the pleasure of a visit from Year 11 Religion and Ethics students who made a presentation on Indigenous Spirituality.
The final unit of study for the class was on Indigenous Spirituality, studying the two indigenous groups of Australia – Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
In groups, students chose an indigenous group as the focus for a project based task.
The Years 3/4 classes were entertained and informed by enthusiastic readings, explanations and demonstrations of how the Aboriginal people had taken care of the land for thousands of years.
“It was great to see how well the two campuses worked together and how the curriculum links throughout the year levels combined,” Years 3/4 teacher Mr Irvin said.
Business in practice
DURING the course of this term, Year 9 students have been working diligently on building their own small business ventures.
As part of Year 9 business studies, students were required to design a small business, complete a business plan, produce a product to sell, and draw up a financial plan.
Students spent lunch times and after school planning, preparing and cooking to get ready for their ventures.
The four businesses included a community bake sale, a morning tea café, a pop-up restaurant for lunch time nachos and, much to the excitement of students, a primary pancakes stall.
Between the four groups, students raised $676, which will all be donated to the St Vincent de Paul Christmas appeal.
