Year 10 Business Studies students hosted their bi-annual Market event on Monday 17 June. This was the culmination of around six weeks of classwork, as well as countless hours of the students’ time outside of class. Mrs Crowder and Mrs Deo are incredibly proud of every student business owner who participated and sold their products at lunchtime to our school community, and then after school to the wider Matamata community at their night market. The total sales from the EFTPOS machine alone were $1010.50 – a massive effort!! A huge thank you to Tracey and Phil Kingston, from the Carpenter and Co, for volunteering their time to judge our businesses and award the winners. Events like this cannot run without the support of volunteers like you ... See MoreSee Less
