Ignite English Excursion

Year 3 & 4 Excursion to the Eumundi Market Stalls
At the beginning of the semester, the Year 3 and 4 students from Ignite English went to the Eumundi Markets to interview business owners about their stalls. Equipped with their clipboards and IPad they were ready to find out the inspirations and ideas behind their stalls in our local town.
 First they interviewed Jason, who is relatively new to the markets. He has a food stall called ‘Pipi Cucu’ in which he sells empanadas, an Argentinian street food. If you see Jason around the markets, be sure to get one of his delicious empanadas!
While one group interviewed Jason, the others were also keen to find out more about foreign delights. They followed their noses to a different stall that was frying up some Asian food. The owners of Asian Street Food have been selling a variety of curries and other traditional foods from Thailand, Vietnam and Sri Lanka for the past seven years.
Not far from the Asian street food stall, is a lovely lady called Nat, who sells flowers. Nat from Heavenly Blooms says her inspiration is nature and the change of seasons. She gets her flowers from local suppliers and sometimes her mother’s garden.
 Next, they came across a lady called Analiese, who owns a stall called ‘Page Turner’ that uses a range of recycled books and prints to create framed artwork. Analiese has been selling her wonderful, recycled artwork for almost 2 years.
After a fun day of interviewing, they looked at all the information they got and started on their articles.
You can find some of these informative articles in the Eumundi Green magazine.  We thank Sacha Cameron for contributing her time to help us become super reporters.
