Commerce in Schools processes

HOW DO WE DO WHAT WE DO?


The Commerce in Schools Committee will, upon request, organise for members of the Chamber to participate in class activities and events for business studies. (e.g. Shark Tank and Hot Seat)

We also liaison with The Hills and District Chamber of Commerce Executive team for approval of sponsored awards for students:

  1. Senior School:  Commerce Award

  2. Senior School:  Miscellaneous award

  3. Middle School: Encouragement Award
