THE Year 9 Business Studies Class at Kingaroy State High School has been able to help those less fortunate than themselves by donating gifts to the 'Kids in Care Christmas Appeal' - an appeal set up for children who live away from home due to neglect or abuse.
The students were able to donate the gifts as a result of profits made from running small businesses.
'Fudge It' team member Jessica Blanch said the market day project was "extremely interesting" and "challenging".
Jessica also said she hoped the gifts would make for a happier day for the children who would not be spending Christmas with their family.
Students sold a range of products on the market day recently including fudge, soft drink spiders, lolly bags and patty cakes.
Students were trained in market survey creation and analysis, product development, break-even analysis and pricing, interview techniques, quality control, health and safety, advertising, financial control, setting up and running a stall and evaluation of business practices.
The gifts will be delivered to the electoral office of Member for Nanango Deb Frecklington in time for Christmas distribution.
