1B8 Exercise Book
There is an expectation that students will contribute to the capital of their own business. This may be through individual contribution or fund raising. This is generally about $10.00. The objective is that the business earns enough money to pay back this investment plus a profit to the student.
Students will be involved in field trips to local enterprises. These should be at no cost.
