Well done to all of our S3 Business Management classes for their excellent effort and participation in the Summer Sport’s Day Challenge.
All pupils were asked to create products to sell during Sport’s Day. The products on offer included ice cream, fruit kebabs and even chocolate covered apples. All of the products were a hit with the pupils and staff. Many of the groups were successful in making a generous profit! Well done!
