$$$ Market Day for Year 10 Economics classes $$$
by CGHS Admin - Wednesday, 27 August 2014, 7:51 PM

As part of the Year 10 Economics course, students form groups and set up a small business to develop and market a product to see if they can make a profit. Market Day is an opportunity for them to sell their products to other students in the school. A wide range of goods were available this year. After a small tax is deducted for a charitable donation, the girls divide the profit up amongst the shareholders of the company.
