Platters on the Run


Platters on the Run Practice Firm

This year The Heights School is operating a practice firm – Platters on The Run Practice Firm. Even though this office has been running since the start of Term I the office was established and operating by the end of week 2 Term II.

The students ordered stationary and office equipment and organised their work stations. They trade with other practice firms within South Australia as well as other states. The students are divided into 4 teams and they rotate through the 4 departments - Administration, Sales & Marketing, Finance and Purchasing and Asset Management - that make up Platters on The Run. The concept of a practice firm allows the students to gain skills, knowledge and experience of running a small business in a low-risk environment. Completing this course, students are able to gain a full Certificate II Business Services.
