On the 7th and 8th of June, students from both The Ess Army and the Youth Environmental Guardians (YEGs), all of which comes from Mayflower Sec, will be participating in the Enterprising Retailing Team Challenge 2008 at Anchor Point to raise funds for Animal Concerns Research & Education Society
There, our students will be promoting our 100% organic insect repellent, Shoo Mozzie. We'll explain to them why everyone should choose organic insect repellant over the industrially manufactured ones, through which we will also spread the word of its effects such as climate change.
We do hope that by going through this experience, we will be more confident in selling our remaining bottles of Shoo Mozzie, gain more experience in handling queries by the public regarding The Ess Army and climate change, and of course, further spread the importance of saving the earth.
The details of the event can be found in this invitation letter:22 April 2008
Invitation to Participate in The Enterprising Retailing Team Challenge 2008,
7 – 8 June 2008
We wish to extend an invitation to your students to participate in The Enterprising Retailing Team Challenge 2008, jointly organised by Yuying Secondary School, the Association of Commerce Educators Singapore (ACES) and the National Institute of Education (NIE).
The main objective of this competition is to engage and enrich the enterprising spirit of the participants by giving them the opportunity to operate a business venture on 7 and 8 June 2008 in the retail sector at Anchor Point. We also hope that the accompanying teachers will tap on this opportunity to network and explore the possibility of future collaboration among the cluster schools.
To be eligible for the competition, participants will have to attend a one-day workshop on financial literacy and enterprise training on 30 May 2008. Details of the workshop are attached. Each school can send up to a maximum of 30 students to the workshop. Participants could include students taking Principles of Accounts (POA) or Elements of Business Skills (EBS). Upon completion of the workshop, 10 students from each participating school will move on to the Enterprising Retailing Team Challenge. Prizes will be awarded to the top three schools which have the highest earnings for the two-day venture.
We would appreciate it if you could complete the registration form attached and return it via fax (62871607) by 30 April 2008 to help facilitate our planning. A NIL reply is appreciated. Please feel free to contact Mdm Soo Sio Koon at 98341637; email: Soo_Sio_Koon@moe.edu.sg should you have any enquiries. Further updates on the event will be sent to schools that have registered.
