Enterprising Year 6 students start their own businesses
Published on: 3 November 2022
Yesterday, 120 Year 6 students at Christ Church Grammar School sold products they have devised and created as part of the School’s Endeavour Project Market Day.
Students have been working together in groups to establish small businesses, collaborating with each other to plan, design, and create unique homemade products to sell during the shared market event. The Endeavour Project fosters students’ 21st Century capabilities, encouraging their innovation, entrepreneurship and collaboration, while expanding their critical and creative thinking.
This year, the proceeds will be donated to the Christ Church Grammar School Indigenous Scholarship Fund. This fund is awarded to boys of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander heritage, who have the potential to lead within their community.
Christ Church Grammar School Principal Alan Jones said he was impressed by the products the boys had created.
“It is fantastic to see so many great products on offer this year, especially with the proceeds from sales going towards such a worthy cause,” he said.
“The program is designed to encourage participants to think outside the box, be their own boss and teach them practical skills they may not learn in more traditional classes.
“The Endeavour Project teaches the boys real-life business skills they will carry throughout their life.”
