Business and Enterprise Day

10 October 2014

Throughout the week children across the school have had a taste of business and a context for learning, culminating in the transition, on Thursday, of the AP1 playing field into a seething mass of feverish trading.

In the past few days, classes have become teams and teams have become companies, united by a common goal of making as much profit as possible. Children became customers, managers, producers, designers and hard working employees, who occasionally lamented how they worked harder than their managers. Words such as profit, loss and the dreaded word 'bankrupt' echoed around the corridors in the preceding days as if the children had known the words for years. Fortunately, due to the innate shrewdness of our children, nobody went bankrupt. Children chose to spend their money carefully from cakes, chocolates, brush robots, massages, hair styling, slushies, smores and many, many more offerings. As produce began to sell out, an accentuation of innovation swept the stalls, as sellers strived to maximize profits, raising prices as the supply dwindled, but the demand continued, or selling their ingredients.

By the time the market closed, children had already began excitedly counting their takings and after deducting their initial loan of 500,000 VND, declared their profits and chose which good cause to donate their profits to. Congratulations to 5B for making an incredible 3,087,000 VND profit! The children’s donations will help build a new playground at Binh Tho, fund a Christmas Party for Thien Phuoc and contribute towards a new sanctuary for the Pygmy Loris.
