SIEU Student Business - Chakoola

SIEU Student Business - Chakoola

On Wednesday 13 June the SIEU Work Ready Skills class ran a food-stall called Chakoola (chakoola means ‘food’ in Swahili) in the A-covered way. 

The students planned, prepared, made and sold delightfully yummy food such as: Indonesian gado-gado, Vietnamese rice-paper rolls, Armenian biscuits and Chinese bubble tea. The idea behind the project was for the students to learn about taking a business idea from concept through to fruition. 

For three weeks the students, planned, discussed, prepared and debated what to sell, how to advertise, location of the stall, who is to do what job among other important tasks. Among themselves, they also decided to donate any profits to the Cancer Council. All of the students eagerly embraced the idea and learned many things about business in Australia as well as practising relevant English skills.
