Each year, M4-M6 students from Bangkok Christian College EIP participate in the Junior Achievement Competition. The idea is to give students access to knowledge and skills required in the business world.
Academic 2010/11 was the first year we have entered students into the competitions. Student went onto make an anti-bacterial hand wash and sell the product around the school campus. The group was a success, and made it to the final stage.
In the current academic year, students are working to sell a snack called "Munch", which is made from seaweed. They are currently nearing the final stage, producing adverts, marketing and business plans. Hopefully with the help of last years group, this year JA will be even more of a success from BCC and the EIP.
A quote from the JA Company themselves:
"We help young people connect what happens in the classroom with real life, ultimately encouraging graduation, skill development, entrepreneurship, and financial responsibility in adulthood."
