Hands-On Learning...

Our Business Studies students get to experience being entrepreneurs; creating a product they have to produce, market and sell. This hands-on learning experience provides them with valuable insight to their studies and the business  world.

Each year level has held a lunchtime market place and the Year 13s also brought their products to the staffroom. The products created by the student groups included hand-made soaps, candles, cookies-in-a-jar sets, cupcakes and other food items, and wooden chopping boards.
