Meaning Business with Cakes
The EMS Cake Sale took place on 17 October. The Intermediate and Senior Phase learners were the sellers and the rest of the school and many other supporters were the buyers! It was a resounding success. Besides teaching learners basic business skills, it also raised funds.
The Senior Phase Open Evening took place on 8 September. The focus of the evening was subject choices for the Grade 9's. Parents were introduced to the different subjects offered in the FET Phase at DSS. Particular mention was made of the differences between Mathematics and Mathematical Literacy.
After the opening session in the school hall, parents could spend the rest of the evening talking to teachers and viewing their children's work.
