Consumer Economics is taught for one period per week with students in years 9 and 10.
In this subject, lifelong skills such as personal budgeting and financial goal setting are introduced and discussed.
Other areas of study enable students to learn about business practices and to explore the values and attitudes which help make a person successful in life and business.
Each year, near the end of the third term, students in Year 9 and 10
hold their "Market day"
On this day, they set up stalls in the school hall with products they have made or provided, to sell to the rest of the school at lunch time.
This is enjoyed by all and it is great seeing the confidence of the students grow as they engage in the marketing challenges of the day.
Below are some market day photo's from previous years.
