School Events: 

Enterprise Market:

As part of our Economics curriculum in Grade 5/6, students will be involved in an Enterprise Learning Program. Enterprise Market is an excellent program to develop a range of life-long skills:

  • Distinguish between goods and services, as well as needs and wants
  • Understand how to be an informed consumer
  • Gain an understanding of personal money management and the role of banking, budgeting, profit/loss and saving
  • The ability to work in a team and improve communication skills
  • Time management
  • Willingness to take responsibility and show initiative


Students work in small groups to develop a ‘Small Business’ idea.

All goods and services made and produced by students over will be for sale at an ‘Enterprise Market’ usually on the same afternoon as the Christmas Carols.


Money raised will go towards;

  • Full cost of the grade 6 Big Day Out (final day excursion of that year)
  • Part cost of the Grade Six Jackets for the following year (the remainder of the jacket costs will be paid by parents, which will be dependent on the amount raised at the Enterprise Market and the number of students in Grade 6)
TAKINGS $1,944.55
PROFIT $1,944.55


Year 6 Public Speaking Program

The Toastmasters Youth Leadership Program is a workshop consisting of nine two-hour sessions during  that enable our students to develop communication and leadership skills through practical experience. The program is presented during the school day for grade 6 students. Students learn to:

  • Evaluate present speaking ability
  • Organize and give speeches
  • Give impromptu talks
  • Control voice, vocabulary and gestures
  • Give constructive feedback and more

The program culminates in  a speech evening which is attended by families.

There is no doubt that the ability to speak well and confidently in front of others is such a great life skill, and we are very fortunate to have dedicated members of Emerald Toastmasters, Wayne and Aileen A’Vard, facilitating this program.
