Saint-Grégoire elementary school was a riot of colourful stands this Monday, June 11. As part of Les petits entrepreneurs, or “Little Entrepreneurs,” kids from five to 12 years old set up their own small businesses for the day. The variety of different ideas on display was impressive: in addition to crafts and baked goods, the kids’ “businesses” ranged from a photo booth to carnival games and tire sur la neige. The program itself is an interesting learning opportunity. As they exercised their creative thinking and interpersonal skills, students also calculated change — often in their heads — and organized complex systems to keep track of their sales. Parents worked hard too; one mother, at her son’s potted plant stall, handed out inspirational flyers. Advice from a tree… Stand tall and proud. Stay grounded. Enjoy your unique beauty. Remember your roots. Keep growing!
