Pentarosa Primary School hosts Market Day

 

In order to play a meaningful role in the international arena, South Africa needs to invest more in its entrepreneurs. The culture of entrepeneurship can be instilled in South Africans from an early age, something which many schools are doing around the country.

Pentarosa Primary School has joined the drive to produce future business people. The school recently held its Market Day, where learners’ business skills were tested.  With the assistance of their parents and the blessing of the school management, learners set up their stalls in the school grounds.

They sold variety of goodies to fellow learners and judging from the response of some of the up and coming entrepreneurs, one can safely say that the event went well.  Both the organisers and the learners acknowledged the importance of working together to uplift the school.

Speaking to the Rising Sun, Mr. Mkhatswa, a teacher, said that the school wanted to encourage a culture of entrepreneurship instead of dependence. He said that learners were taught beforehand, on how to start a business. This included drawing up a business plan and raising capital. The learners were also taught how to save the money that they generate.  An account has been opened to save all the profits for future endeavours.

Both Mr Radebe and Mr . Shangase, HODs, shared Mr Mkhatswa’s sentiments. They conveyed their appreciation to the learners, the school management and, most importantly, to the parents for being part of the initiative.
