Our Service Experience

For our Level 2 Economics project, we created a business group called Petal & Posie which is a non-profitable business run by seven Year 12 girls at Carmel. On 5 May we produced 38 flower bouquets that we sold at the Takapuna markets. We also produced 49 flower bouquets that we sold on 2 June at the Coatesville markets. At both markets we were very successful and sold out. 100% of our profits from the markets will be going to the NZ Breast Cancer Foundation as a part of our economics internal. We chose the NZBCF as our charity because breast cancer mainly affects women and being an all-girls college, we think it is important to support this cause. We had a great time at both these markets, learnt a lot about running a business and all the hard work that goes into it.
