First part of the session saw us listening to Jonathan from raiSE, and learning about the landscape of social enterprises in Singapore. We also discussed about a very common question - should social enterprises be profitable? What are your thoughts? :)

Every REN session, we give our participating educators hardcopy lesson plans for them to bring back to their students. Interested educators can sign up here to request for the sample lesson plan.

Every group represents a business entity, that sells origami flowers. The twist comes in when each entity faces different challenges, and how does each team navigate these difficulties.

Teachers make really good hagglers by the way, it was eye opening looking at them bargain with Weiyuan to sell their origami flowers at the highest price.

Time really flew :( We wrapped up our session with a short sharing session for teachers to share about their challenges in school, and how we could all build a stronger community to support one another!
