Stu­dents show­case their en­ter­prise

Southern Gazette (Victoria Park) - - News -

KENS­ING­TON Sec­ondary School stu­dents with a dis­abil­ity are en­cour­aged to cre­ate, link and par­tic­i­pate in an an­nual spring fair and mar­ket day on Fri­day.

The fair will pro­mote the Ed­u­ca­tion Sup­port South Net­work (ESSN), of which Kens­ing­ton Sec­ondary is a mem­ber.

Teacher Mandy Royce said the mar­ket day was an ini­tia­tive for stu­dents to cre­ate in­no­va­tive en­ter­prise prod­ucts, link these to the lo­cal and wider com­mu­nity and par­tic­i­pate as a school net­work.

“The ESSN Spring Fair Mar­ket Day is about bring­ing to­gether part­ner schools and their com­mu­ni­ties in a fun and col­lab­o­ra­tive en­vi­ron­ment.

“The aim of the event is to show­case the tal­ents and hard work of our stu­dents and sell a va­ri­ety of class­room en­ter­prise prod­ucts.”

Ten schools are par­tic­i­pat­ing, as well as lo­cal and wider com­mu­nity groups in­clud­ing the Town of Vic­to­ria Park, Ro­tary Como, Kens­ing­ton po­lice, Kens­ing­ton fire­fight­ers and Lions Club of El­len­brook.

There will be live en­ter­tain­ment, school stalls, a free raf­fle, silent disco, chill-out area, fire truck, po­lice car, food and the El­len­brook Lions mini train.
