In 2018, SMGS launched Kidpreneur. The program was a huge success and is now back for 2019! (To read all about the program launch in 2018, click HERE!)

Kidpreneur is an initiative designed to guide, support and equip today’s young people with the necessary skills to inspire our future entrepreneurs.  The program is open to students from Years 5 – 9 and will run one lunchtime per week, commencing in Week 5 in Term 1.  This will culminate in an ‘Eat Street Market Day’.

Junior School Eat Street Market: Thursday 28thMarch (Week 9)

Senior School Eat Street Market: Thursday 4thApril (Week 10)

Training sessions:

  • Understand the concepts of entrepreneurship
  • Brainstorm product ideas
  • Create a budget for the creation of the product
  • Create a simple marketing plan
  • Sell the product at Market Day
  • Calculate profit and/or loss margins
  • Analyse the business process.

Product creation:

  • Students may work as individuals or as pairs

  • Students are to budget, plan and advertise during lunchtimes

  • Students must bring the receipts for the purchase of equipment in to school
  • After Market Day, equipment purchase costs will be reimbursed (provided the students have generated the required funds!)
