1.STMC Fair Trade Campus Sale
It is a cross-subject business experiential activity aiming to nurture students’ entrepreneurial spirit. The planning and organizing of the ‘Fair Trade Campus Sale” are led by students. They take charge of raising capital, choosing the products, placing online purchase orders, contacting suppliers, fixing prices, packaging, designing posters, promotion, selling and making financial statements. Through the activity, the students can apply the economic and BAFS concepts and different generic real-life skills, such as creativity, communication and collaboration skills. The activity also opens up students’ global perspective. They learn about the problems of income inequality and child labour in developing countries.
Students can enrich their experience and broaden their horizons. Our students actively participate in different business competitions, such as the HKCC Business Excellence Contest, HK Secondary School Marketing Contest and JA International Trade Challenge – Hong Kong Finals.
Through interactive financial workshops, our students learn financial management concepts and skills that benefit them lifelong.
