Pupils earning and learning at Market Day

Rare talent with rarer instrument Acclaimed French musician Antoine Tamestit will perform in Wellington tomorrow with the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra on one of the world’s rarest violas. Tamestit, who is the guest soloist for the Orchestra’s Travels in Italy concert tour, plays a Stradivarius viola made in 1672 by Antonio Stradivari. It was the first viola built by Stradivari, and is distinct from the other 15 viola Stradivari made. Friday’s concert is at the Michael Fowler Centre from 6.30pm.

The assembly hall was a hive of activity when Evans Bay Intermediate School (EBIS) held its sixth Market Day last Wednesday. The once-a-term after-school event saw pupils put their entrepeneurial skills to the test, with 40 stalls of food and crafts on display. EBIS deputy principal and Market Day co-ordinator Ed Trotter said it wasn’t just about giving children an opportunity to make some money, but also about improving their finanacial literacy. “It’s about connecting maths with real-world experiences, interpersonal skills, marketing and teamwork.” Ed says. “They learn about gross and net profit from how much money they make and what their costs are.” They also learn the key to success is knowing what the customer wants, he says.
