Students use enterprise to raise funds

Students from Ceduna Area School have commenced raising funds for their annual homegroup trip to Port Lincoln later in the year with a successful street stall held last week outside the Ceduna Memorial Hall.

Students from room 16, the year 7-12 section of the school, have used the enterprise cycle to form in groups of two or three their own independent business which either produces an item or provides a service.

This required each group to identify a concept for their business, to develop a business plan – including a name, logo, slogan, function, produce and organising their item or service – to undertake testing, market their business, conduct an activity and reflect on the process.

As a whole homegroup, the students have also been involved in developing and manufacturing products which can be sold to generate additional funds to reduce the cost for each camp participant.

Students also produced fridge magnets promoting Ceduna and tissue box covers featuring scenes from the district.

‘Barbed Wire BBQ’, the business owned by Harvey Brooks, Blake Gurney and Noah Blums, planned and organised the first activity last Thursday.

Their business provided a barbecue lunch, which raised more than $400 and sold out of all items well before the published closing time.

The trio said they would like to sincerely thank the community for their patronage and their generous donations of additional money.

They would also like to thank Vangie Blums and Jenny Brooks for their support in helping them on the day.
