At SMGS, we work hard to equip each student with the fundamental skills to thrive in a modern world. Our globalised world has shifted considerably in the 21st century. New knowledge economies require advanced analytical thinking and skills, an ability to identify and solve complex problems in a range of different contexts, and the ability to engage and collaborate with others to produce outstanding results.
The SMGS Kidpreneur Club is one of our many co-curricular programs that is achieving the mission stated above by providing a real-life application of curriculum learning in business, economics and mathematics.
What is SMGS Kidpreneur?

The program is open to students from Years 5 – 9 and runs one lunchtime per week.
