For the past two days, our Year 8 students have participated in an interactive entrepreneurial program called The Smoothie Bar. This program involved students working in small groups to develop a smoothie flavour and brand. To do this they participated in a series of workshops including market research, product and brand development, marketing and financing, before each group developed and practiced their pitch and set-up their booth in preparation for the trade show event which parents attended last night. During the event students delivered their presentations to parents who voted for a winner.
The Smoothie Bar was a great success and provided a highly engaging real-world challenge to assist our students to continue developing key tools and skills such as critical and creative thinking, teamwork, problem-solving, communications, presentation and digital and financial literacy.
Well done to all the students and staff involved, in particular, the winning teams, and a very big thank you to TRIPOD Tribe for running this fantastic event.
