On Friday, 3rd June, The fruits of an entire course’s labour was seen when the students from 5th Primary set up their stall at the School Cooperatives Market in Plaza de los Sitios to sell the products they had made in their cooperative.
Aprendiendo a Emprender (Learning to Launch) is an Ibercaja Foundation project that we’ve participated in in 5th Primary for many years. The market is the icing on the cake of the whole school year, where the students learn in a curricular way how a cooperative is formed, how to create a logo, a brochure and a market study, and finally making sustainable products. They learned all the steps necessary in setting up a cooperative, from assigning the roles to working on the creative, commercial or bureaucratic side.
They all concurred on donating 100% of the profits to a NGO.
