Market Day 30 March

Small Business and Marketing students created small businesses of their own and then organised stalls for their Market Day program. The stalls were very popular - eg. bonsai terrariums, tie-dye shirts, churros, Asian food, cupcakes, drinks, hot food and games. Students learnt a lot about the challenges of running a small business!
