In Economics, both Grade 11 and 12 students have been focusing on very pertinent issues in class recently. Grade 12 students have been focusing on aspects of International Economics, considering matters such as exchange rates, international trade and the balance of payments. They have experienced this through various activities, including a game in which they balanced the priorities of government (keeping voters happy and managing the economy), in which the ability of students to make judgements was developed whilst also working as teams to consolidate their knowledge of economics. Grade 11 students (pictured) have been looking at matters relating to market failure, which is when too many or too few resources are allocated to an economic activity, as the full costs/benefits of the activity are not taken into consideration. They have considered how to model this using economic diagrams, using examples of things like cigarettes and sugary foods (what we call demerit goods) and health and education (what we call merit goods). All students are currently writing their first internal assessment for economics and many students have chosen to focus on writing a commentary on a news article of market failure in the real world.
