Mind Your Own Business

A highlight in the Unit 2 Business Management calendar has been the creation and presentation of the students’ business concepts. This assessment task drew on the boys’ knowledge of marketing, where they worked co-operatively to design a promotional package for a new product or service. The strategies included a 30-second radio ad, business card, website and a pitch in the form of a video. Mrs Cape-Murphy and I were impressed with the students’ creativity and ability to work collaboratively, especially as they navigated the remote-learning setting.
