Selling CBSE-i Handicrafts
The ‘School Enterprise Challenge’, an initiative of UK based NGO ‘Teach a Man to Fish’ organization is an excellent platform to enhance entrepreneurial skills of the students.
On September 17, 2016 during the PTM of Montessori to grade 2 students of CBSE-i (International Curriculum) we sold handicraft items made by the students of these classes to parents and teachers. A mélange of eye catching handicrafts prepared by the students during their Visual Art periods from recycled and waste material lying in the school and at home were displayed for sale. The business team comprising of grade 11 and 12 students along with students of CBSE-ijunior classes were involved in selling of these products, bringing their communication skills, convincing power and sales strategies to fore.
The products made by various classes were:
Neck Pieces – Grade 2
X Ray Sheet Decoration – Grade 3
Photo Frame – Grade 1
Cloth Bags – Grade 7
Brush Pencil Holder – Grade 4
Crayon Stand – Grade 4
Envelopes – Grade 5
Key Chains – Grade 6
Ear Rings - Grade 2
Bangles – Grade 6
We got first hand exposure of running a business enterprise independently and how to deal with different kinds of customers. Till now we were just gaining theoretical knowledge but now we are learning the practical experience of what a business actually is! We would continue to expand our business and I would like to appreciate the efforts made by our school for giving us this exposure.
