Market Day 2010

Restaurant Manager greeting his customers
Waitress Jamie, taking orders from two Grade 1s.
Shelly and Dylan having a romantic lunch
Aurora and Jade sharing a laugh over pizza and grape just.

Taine's Restaurant Report
I got the idea to sell pizzas from my father. He suggested I should sell slices of pizza. When I told Miss Tyler of my idea, she came up with the idea of a restaurant. 
I decorated the tables with table clothes, menus and wine glasses. I took reservations the day before. Lots of couples were the first to book a table.
My customers included teachers, friends, senior pupils and very young ones.
I employed 3 Grade 3 girls to play waitresses to help me. They were allowed to keep their tips, which were quite considerable!
I think my business was so successful because it had a good atmosphere, and the idea of a restaurant really got people's attention.
I made R594.80 (South African Rands) on the day! (That is the equivalent of US$83 or 47UKpounds)

Jade's Beach Party Stall
On Market Day I sold sell charms, lip balm, water colours and popcorn. 
I enjoyed the day because it was so much fun interacting with my customers  and persuading them to buy my goods. I feel that it was hard to sell to the right people. My customers were mostly crafty type people and children who were hungry.
When I was finished I went around the school saying "Buy a packet of popcorn and get something for free!!"
It worked really well and I sold the rest of my goods.
I made a R212.65 (pounds17 or US$51)

Zoe's Artists Studio
I was selling greeting cards that I made myself. I also sold cappuchino muffins with chocolate icing. Making the cards was lots of fun. It took about 30min to make one card and I sold them for R6 (about $1)
Many people who did not have enough money to buy one, complimented me on my cards. One person said that they could see that I put a lot of effort into them.
I made R139 ($19 or 11 pounds)
I put a lot of thought into my theme and dressed up like a French Artist...
"Don't I look French!!?"
 Joe's Woofing Good Report
"Arf arff..arf arf aaaaarrrffff"...No I'm just kidding...
I got the idea to sell pet treats from the internet. I sold handbaked cat and dog cookies, and handmade pet toys. I put a lot of effort into making my themed stalkl look attractive.
All the teachers bought my goods, as well as the children. The cat biscuts have cat nip in them, and the dog treats have dog food in them. I tested them out my own pets and they liked them very much!

  2. Hello!
    I found your blog via google search. I teach grade 5 in New Brunswick, Canada, and my students just started their own blog pages. We are looking for students to comment on our work and vice versa. Our school just received a special designation and we will be sending a delegation to Cape Town for a big conference next month. We would love to learn more about your city and culture so that we can follow our teachers on their South African adventure!

  3. Hello Canadian teacher
    We'd be happy to be friends and tell you anything you'd like to know about Cape Town.
