On Friday the 9th of December our transition year group held a Christmas market for the public which took place up in the mercy hall. This market took up weeks and weeks of preparation and dedication from everyone in the year. I was in a group with Hannah and Lana and for our stall we were doing home baking.
On the Wednesday before the market we made cookies and cupcakes. We decorated these with icing that we made ourselves. We ended up making over a hundred cookies in total and over twenty cupcakes as they were harder to create. We stored them in boxes and sealed them to keep them fresh for the market.
On Friday the day of the market we headed up to the mercy hall at 9.00 to decorate our stall. After that was done we waited until 10.00 which was the time that the market was beginning. We got people from the local primary schools and from the town to come in and buy our things. Our business was quite successful and we ended up making a good bit of money from it.
I was really happy that our school decided to hold a Christmas market as it was something that got everyone to work together and it was a lot of fun
