Emma’s Soda Stand
Lemonade still hits the spot

Coming from a ‘foodie’ family, little Emma was destined for the childhood Lemonade Stand!

With Dad helping to create the lemon concentrate, and mum handing over an old sewing table for recycling as a Lemonade Stand, Emma was on her way to launching the next big thing.

Emma’s first market was held in November 2016. She was the most impressive 6 year old we’ve ever met! Although she was initially shy and reserved, over the last two years she has come out of her shell and developed confidence serving customers and running her stall.

Her product has proven to be incredibly popular. She was selected to represent Kidpreneurs at the WACSSO Conference held in Perth and unexpectedly started receiving enquiries to serve her Lemonade – with her custom made Lemonade Stand – at all kinds of events.

With sales ranging from 20-40 cups at each market, Emma continued with her business until recently redirecting her focus towards fundraising.

Emma had lots to say about running her own business and the unexpected popularity of her product and store. Watch her interview here.

Love from our teachers

"The program brought small business and financial management to the forefront of our students minds. It really opened their eyes to the ‘real world’ and that money does not just magically appear. It put things into perspective and their initiatives displayed at the Market stall day really showed the learning they gained from the program.
The Year 5 students are already talking about it!"

Melanie Buller, Principal SHHP 2019

"I was absolutely blown away by how successful the night was. The students did an amazing job and I am so proud of them. I haven’t done the final count, but I won’t be surprised if between them they have raised over $2000 in profit! And it’s not over! I have a meeting with our P&F representatives tomorrow to see if we can support them with their Christmas stall."
