Cupcakes Abound!

25/10/2016
​As part of a Business and Economics Unit for one of our Year 8 classes, students have created a cupcake business at school. Students analysed data to make decisions about product type and unit costs prior to beginning. The cupcake business develops according to customer demand and resources, which then informs students’ practices. It is very pleasing to see how the students come up with problem solving solutions, which at times means they volunteer some of their break time to meet business needs. The aims are to provide a quality product, maintain affordable prices for customers and produce cupcakes to a high standard of industry hygiene; hence students are seen sporting gloves, aprons and caps.
I must congratulate the students on their ability to take on the demands of the business. It is lovely to see the dedication it takes to see a project like this through. After the students have calculated the business expenses and profits, they will enjoy the fruits of their labour in a well-earned fun activity, but also donate funds back into the school.
News Flash: There will be a new taste sensation to improve the cupcakes starting this Tuesday. Please let our students know what you think about the products. There will be chocolate, vanilla and gluten + dairy free cupcakes for sale at second break for a dollar each. See you there!
