The combined total profit of $1053 was donated to Faith College Science teacher Jess Roberts who is currently on sick leave.
In speaking with students, clever planning & pre-sales from ‘Oh Honey’ Wax lunch wraps & ‘C’ est la vie’ handmade beaded lanyards was the key to ensuring supply versus demand was considered to maximise return and minimise wastage. Another element which led to success was following a passion for their business. ‘Oh Honey’ students Jemma Linke and Kyah Cornish retold how they decided to choose an on-trend product that met their criteria of being environmentally friendly. Fabrics were purchased from the op shop & dipped in wax, jojoba and pine resin to create the reusable food wraps which sold out very quickly.
Students Dana Kalleske and Brooke Friebel of C’est la vie capitalised on their existing College and family audience by running a survey to ensure their products would sell. Brady Griffiths and Hannah Eagland did all their research on Facebook, Instagram and used YouTube for a step-by-step guide on how to make car air diffusers with essential oils, but came up against some challenges when not all of their on-line ordered materials arrived. Casey Miles and Georgie Carter of Wholehearted rose early on the morning of the market and made fresh juices to accompany the cookies & fruit cup.
‘Thank you to all staff, students and parents who supported these young entrepreneurs. An activity of this type gives real-world learning skills and highlights the intensity and relentless nature of running a business and the difficulties associated with operating a partnership,’ Judy Minge exclaimed.
