Australian Business Week

The Australian Business Week (ABW) Program is held annually at Hamilton Secondary College. This year it will be for all Year 10 students.

Felicity-ann Lewis, Mayor of the City of Marion, opens the week with an inspiring address on the importance of business development for the City of Marion and the exciting opportunities available for students graduating from Hamilton Secondary College.

 A team of visiting experts encourage and inspire our students with addresses on Finance Management, Business Planning, Creative Development, Video Commercials, Trade Exhibitions, Public Speaking and Report Writing.

ABW is a week-long business simulation program in which teams of students take over and run a 200 bed, full-service hotel. Teams compete enthusiastically in the simulation running their hotels for eight business quarters, producing television commercials, company annual reports, trade displays and addressing annual meetings of shareholders.

Students have the opportunity to gain a Stage 1 SACE credit upon successful participation and completion of the program.
