Market Day at Ndawonye

All grade seven learners learn entrepreneurial skills in the subject EMS and therefore have to take part in a market day. At Ndawonye Primary School, the grade sevens had their market day on Wednesday, 30 September.

The almost 400 grade sevens at the Ndawonye Primary School learnt many appropriate skills (such as advertising, research and marketing) before, during and after the market day. They made lovely advertisements and did research well in advance, ma-king sure they knew what would sell on the day. There were sweets, biscuits, ice-creams, ice-pops (good ideas in the very hot weather of the past few weeks) and a lot more for sale. The whole school supported them. The grade sevens were also supported very well by the staff, especially Mr C.R. Mhlanga (principal) and Mr Z. N. W. Mtshali (HOD).

The learners namely received money from the school to buy their goods and ingredients for the project. All profits then also went back to the school. In this way, the market day also became a fundraiser for the school. The grade seven teachers in charge of the project were D.C. Phonela and S.T. Dlamini. According to them the objective of the annual market day is for the learners to learn to become entrepreneurs. They learn how to do research, marketing, advertising and how to calculate profits and losses. Therefore the market day is a good way of integrating with other learning areas such as mathematics and even art (making the advertisements). The market day was a big success and everyone who took part in it, be it as an entrepreneur or supporter is thanked for all the enthusiasm, hard work and positive attitudes. Everyone enjoyed the market day tremendously.
