Masig Teardrop Ice open for business!

12/09/2016

​Our business is now open! This business is operated by our Year 4, 5 & 6 class. Students went through the special business design process. They identified a need for the business, what the business will be used for, how the business will operate, a logo, a roster and of course a business name. The business name Teardrop Ice reflects the shape of our island and also fits perfectly as teardrops are made from water which ice is made from! Each week a student manager is selected who then chooses their 3 staff members for the week. The manager and staff members are in charge of packing the ice, stocktaking, counting money, managing our power bill and replenishing. Our ice is now also being sold at our community’s Kozan shop so it is available to community members after school hours and on weekends. This ice business is a real life opportunity to create sustainability and also for the students to learn how to be an entrepreneur. An entrepreneur is an initiator, a challenger and a leader. The entrepreneurial mindset treat’s life’s hurdles as challenges to overcome and fostering these skills early on will pay dividends in the years to come. We would also like to thank Torres Air and Ice for your support with our business.
