DG Khetan International School, Mumbai, India recently came up with a fun way to introduce their Grade 8 and 9 students to Cambridge IGCSE commerce subjects (Economics, Business Studies and Accounts) - asking them to set up and run their own market stalls at a weekend exhibition.
The Plethora event was designed to help learners decide which subjects to study at Cambridge IGCSE, and find out where their skills and interests lie. By selling a range of products - including handmade paper bags, fridge magnets and sweets - learners gained insight into business and some of the concepts and terminology used in commerce. They did very well - selling all their stock to shoppers at good profits.
Kavita Aggarwal, Principal said the event also gave students an appreciation of the value of money and corporate social responsibility. She said: "Proceeds from the event will be directed towards the welfare of underprivileged children. This is in keeping with the exhibition's aim to bring about awareness of the responsibilities of businesses towards society, and our school's and management's continuous commitment to the welfare of the underprivileged at large."
