Year 10 Market Day

Kia Ora!  –  Two year 10 classes had a great day prepping, cooking and selling their food as part of Youthtown’s Enterprise Program on Tuesday the 31st of July.  It has been a steady 8 week build up to this day where the students learned about leadership, had fun with Adventure Based Learning (ABL) activities to build their teams, learnt about the importance of Market Research, how to write up a Business & Financial Plan and put together their own promotional material.  A goal for the Market Day was for the students to have a first-hand experience of Enterprise.  I believe that we have achieved that goal!  Many thanks to the teachers who gave up their precious time and space to make this day happen.  Special acknowledgement for the effort from Mr Mills and the Year 10 students to make this program smooth and memorable. – Laura Olsen – Youthtown’s Programmes Co-Ordinator (Youth)
