The Young Entrepreneur
The annual feature for students of Grade 6 took off this year with a couple of innovations. The sales-pitch and marketing were conducted online on the 6th of March and they were ably mentored by commerce students of Grade 11.
The young entrepreneurs planned and devised ideas to make hand-made products at the beginning of the academic year. Aligned in the areas of critical and creative thinking, they designed colourful and attractive slides displaying information of their products and features, requesting for capital from their investors – their parents. Each of them spoke with clarity and eloquence making their presentation interesting and encouraging thus reinforcing their message.
The entire event helped them learn essential life skills like money management, time management and teamwork and most important of all the art of giving, as the proceeds from the sales would be used towards the school’s outreach program.
