Gozo College Secondary School Year 7 Students Fund-raising Activity

DSCF5047 (1)Together with our mentor, as part of an entrepreneurial project, we decided to participate in a fund-raising activity.  As a group, we sold pens and with the money collected, we were able to buy 195 boxes of crayons for the sick children in hospital. This activity had an educational purpose.

At first, we prepared an advert using a Word Processor and promoted our activity by visiting different classrooms to inform them about our plan. After, we visited a printing business to discuss, the colours, motto, logo and price of the pens. This served as an entrepreneurial experience.
