San Pedro Roman Catholic School students get hands on experience on entrepreneurship
Sunday, December 8th, 2013
Mr. Nery Cortez, Standard V teacher of San Pedro Roman Catholic School organized a small business activity for his students after having completed their lessons on consumer arithmetic. Mr. Cortez divided his class into four groups that would each create their own business venture. The groups sold everything from pizza and doughnuts to lemonade and marshmallow pops, and they’re fellow students were buying!
From this activity students got to put into practice the theory of the different lessons such as profit and loss, simple interest, percentages and discounts. Mr Cortez explained that he wanted to give the students hands on practice to the concepts learned in the classroom.
Good job Mr Cortez and students, you surely prove yourselves to be “Future Entrepreneurs of La Isla Bonita.”
