The Year 8 Trade Day was held on Wednesday the 27th of June in Term Two, and encompassed all of their Economic Curriculum. Trade Day was a real-life market stall, similar to your traditional array of Saturday Community Market Stalls. The students went above and beyond producing some amazing products and services, plus presenting their stalls impeccably and specifically targeting their consumer.
This was a competition amongst their peers, with the winners being those whom made the most money in each class. Each student was only given $20 to spend. This soon became a competition between the Sellers and the Buyers. The Sellers had to find a balance between supply and demand of their product or service and also ensuring they made the most money. The Buyers had to make decisions between their wants and needs, and ensure they achieved their goal of getting the best ‘bang for their buck’
