YEAR 9 BUSINESS EXPO
On Friday 24th October, the Champagnat Centre was buzzing with hundreds of students, staff and members of the community keen to see what was on offer at the Grade 9 Business Expo. There were 12 businesses selling a wide variety of home cooked food and handmade products.
The Business Expo is a significant event for the students as it showcases six months of their hard work in establishing a business from scratch. As part of their studies, year 9 Business students are given the opportunity to establish and operate a business of their own. They are required to create a business name, logo and slogan appropriate for their product. They must also develop a business plan detailing all the logistics of how they plan to run the business.
During the course of their ventures, students learned about start-up capital, pricing, stock price comparison, profit margins, production, distribution, advertising and marketing, teamwork, profit and loss and much, much more. Congratulations to all Year 9 Business Students and thank you to everyone who helped make this event such a success!
