On Friday 05 July 2019, the annual Entrepreneurship day of Khomas High School was held school premises. This is an official event for the Grade 9’s as it is part of their continuous assessment (Cass) marks at the end of the year. On this day, delicious food was sold as learners were sipping on mock tails while enjoying the day with friends and teachers. This year the Grade 9’s were in charge of hosting the Entrepreneurship day and not the Grade10’s as per the syllabi change for the grades 8-10.

The excitement on this day could be felt a mile away. Some however were not as excited because the learners are not allowed to wear casual clothes at this event. The ones allowed to wear casual clothes were the ones selling the products.

Speaking to some of the learners to hear how they felt about this day, “I feel that Entrepreneurship day is just a waste of a valuable school day because there is no fun in anything,” said one of the learners. According to the learner having to wear a school uniform without any entertainment, like music and spending the day outside is not how teenagers want to have fun.

“Entrepreneurship is a good initiative because it gives the learners exposure to the business world and of how it feels to be a business owner,” said Fimaneka Nghitakwa when asked a day before the entrepreneurship day. According to her it helps the learners express their creativity in having them find opportunities and ideas to start up a business. Communication skills are also being brushed up on and team work is on the forefront. “I am very excited to see what these young entrepreneurs have to offer and I’m looking forward to lots of delicious food,” Nghitakwa added. Speaking to one of the pupils that participated in the entrepreneurship day we found out how she handled the workload of the day. “It is a very stressful event as not everyone in the group wanted to put in the work.

Despite the concerns over music and school uniforms the day turned out to be quite enjoyable as music was allowed after all. The school uniforms did not at all affect the spirit in which the learners enjoyed the day. “After all the negative energy surrounding the event I found it to be quite fun and we had an opportunity to spend time outside the classroom,” said one of the learners.
