A Marvellous Market Day

Union High School’s Grade 7 learners put in a lot of extra effort to make their market day, which took place this morning, Monday, 19 August, a huge success.

The market forms part of the Economic Management Sciences Curriculum, where the Grade 7s learn about Entrepreneurship and the opportunities it provides. Market Day involved creating an β€˜open market’ atmosphere, where the entire school had an opportunity to purchase goods on sale from our budding Grade 7 Entrepreneurs.Β  This project involves everything from advertising and marketing, to budgeting and calculating their profit or loss.

Items on sale included: food and drinks, crafts, toys and novelty items, along with some fun activities such as slingshot shooting, a balloon popping station and a bunny petting zoo.
