MARKET DAY (When we are allowed again – on hold for now)

Market Day is an entrepreneurial experience for all our Primary Children. They are given a budget and are then asked to produce recycled, creative, (preferably organic) goods for their ‘customers’. Various business skills are called upon.

R100-00 payable for Market Day stalls. Any profit made from the children hosting their Market Day stall is for them to take home.

All children at Buccleuch Montessori are invited to support our Market day which always promises to be a highlight of each term. Recommended spending money is a minimum of R40-00 and a maximum of R150-00

Please supply a labeled shopping bag for goods bought by your child.
