"My Dream Shop" Competition

"My Dream Shop" is an annual competition organised by New Town Primary School where pupils are given the opportunity to be proficient users of the language; develop entrepreneurship skills in a realistic yet monitored competitive environment; learn to care for the less fortunate pupils and to demonstrate their learning and interact with children from various schools. 

In this competition, participants team up to package and market donated stationery items to selected financially needy children, using monopoly-style plastic money, 
while competing with the other school teams in terms of sales pitch and actual sales profit. 
The team, comprising of 6 P4 pupils, went through several training and research sessions under the guidance of Mr Shah, in preparation for this competition. They gained valuable learning experience through this competition.
