Year 9 Commerce Excursion
As part of the Commerce Course the Year 9 students studied the topic Running a Business. To obtain a first-hand look at how businesses are organised, an excursion to Erina Fair Shopping Centre was organised.

The focus in this unit was for students to investigate how entrepreneurial attributes and dispositions contribute to business success. They examined the considerations involved when planning and running a business. The students also investigate key issues and processes related to the various aspects of running a business.

The excursion provided students with an opportunity to experience businesses in action. Erina Fair Shopping Centre consists of several types of businesses selling and promoting a range of products and services. It also encourages competition between these businesses. The students observed and recorded notes on consumer behaviour, store layout, store location and methods of advertising while exploring Erina Fair.
