Sabre Saves!!

What an inspiring and amazing few weeks we have had in rooms 11 and 12! We have been so busy fundraising for our chosen charity, D'Arcy's A.R.C. Students were so busy over the past few weeks. 

Our marketing team designed and created a variety of posters to advertise what we were selling and who we were fundraising for.

The public relations team worked on writing blog posts,meters home, announcements at school and presenting at our assembly.

Our finance team was busy comparing prices, working out how many supplies we needed, coming up with prices, and totalling our money collected every day.

Everyone was involved in production, which included making and decorating 7(!) batches of sugar cookies and packaging candy.

Everyone also participated in sales at recess.

These types of projects are so rewarding in so many ways. It expands their vocabulary and knowledge of business related terms and ideas, and incorporates all sorts of math and language arts concepts. It also brings in Socual Studies concepts such as helping out in our local community.
