International Friendship Day I&E Bazaar

Hi 105

1] Please bring your bazaar publicity materials and games props tomorrow. We will try to finish all the prep work by 5.30pm if you are fast workers.

2] Both teams will have to take charge of the overall publicity which includes informing the 'potential customers' about the types of food, games and attractive prizes we have lined up. I saw your advertisement on classroom whiteboards which is really good effort. Perhaps you might want to have mini posters around the school. I can print the posters once you have given me the designs tomorrow.

All the best!

Bazaar Project and Business Plan Presentation

Hi 105,

1] Please get into your I&E camp working groups and start brainstorming on the goods/ services that could be sold at 105's stall at the 'International Friendship Day Bazaar' on 21 July.

2] Craft your business plan in details, taking into consideration the resources, time, 4Ps etc.

3] Keep your budget low as profits will be going to charity. Be resourceful and see if any parent is able to sponsor certain items.

4] Refer to the I&E Googlesite for all the I&E Camp lecture slides to help you craft your business plan.

5] Submit your Keynote slides ( max 10) to the I&E 'Submit Folder' by end of the lesson for evaluation. Presentation and voting will take place next Tue during your I&E lesson.
