Year 10 Business Management $20.00 Boss project

Year 10 Business Management $20.00 Boss project

On Monday, students from the Year 10 Business Management classes completed their $20.00 Boss Enterprise project at lunchtime on the basketball courts.

The project started in Term 1 after the classes visited a successful local business, Tuckerberry Hill Farm. There they heard from owner/operator, Chris on the challenges and complexities involved with running a small business from Marketing/Advertising, Operations, Quality Control, Pricing and Sales.

Students were then divided into groups and each group decided on a Business. Types of Businesses included, Hot Chocolates, Spida’s, Loaded Fries, Rocky Road, Homemade Hamburgers and Cupcakes. With a small investment of $20.00 for each student, it was now up to them to create, plan and run their own business with students taking on responsibilities such as an Operations Manager, Marketing Manager, Sales Manager, Finance / Legal Manager and General Manager

Each unique business managed their own stall on the day, demonstrating excellent Employability Skills such as Leadership, Team Work, Problem Solving, Time Management and Communication.

After the investment was paid back, students raised over $400.00 in profit which will be donated to charity.

Well done students.
