We have been learning about ways to manage money and as a big finale to our unit, we are having a Year 7 and 8 market day. Our parents and grandparents will be invited, as well as the rest of the school. Each of us is creating a proposal for a stall and convincing our parents that our idea is worth investing in. Hopefully, they will provide us with a small amount of capital e.g. $5 and in our small groups we will combine this money to start up our stall. After the big event on Wednesday 10 April, we will give our investors back their capital and any profits will go to Oumou, the girl we sponsor through World Vision in Mali.
In 8C, there are five groups planning a range of activities; some are goods and some are services. We will reveal our big ideas soon.
Have you ever been involved in a market day? What suggestions do you have for us about promoting our stalls?
