The advertising program engages students from Year 6 – Year 12 in the world of advertising and media and communications.
Based on the Gruen Transfer, the program allows students to work in teams to create an advertisement and a corresponding pitch that they present to the class at the end of the program.
Students are given an ‘unsellable’; a product or policy that is difficult to sell. Using advertising theory acquired in the first sessions, students strive to create a presentation that would sway an investor to fund their project – just as it would happen in the real world.
