Selling Senior School Handicrafts
The ‘School Enterprise Challenge’ an initiative of UK based NGO ‘Teach a Man to Fish’ developed entrepreneurial competencies of the business team of grade 11 and 12 students enabling them to sell the handicrafts with confidence and ease. The event fostered entrepreneurship skills, communication, teamwork and confidence amongst the students.
On November 7, 2015 during the PTM of grade 6 to 10 students, our school enterprise named Handy Handicrafts Organization (H2O) exhibited the handicraft products made by students of Senior School. We raised funds by selling different products made by the students during their Art and Club Activity periods. On display were paintings made on recycled sheets, pen stands made from newspaper, flower pots made from plastic bottles, decorative show pieces made from old CDs, old greeting cards and file folders made from used card sheets, magazines and files. The leftover earthen lamps prepared by Montessori children were also put up for sale.
The profits generated from the sale of handicrafts will be given to our partner school - Bwafwano School in Zambia for the children living in extreme povertyfor whomthe school meal is their only meal of the day.
