Supermarket Visit

A key part of learning is ‘doing’ and the PAK’nSAVE, New World, Four Square, Shoprite and Write Price supermarket visit allows students to apply classroom learning to an interactive setting.

Lasting 45 minutes, students undertake enquiry learning into specific topics such as label reading, product placement, product comparisons (for example fresh and canned fruits and vegetables) and allergy awareness. 

Once a suitable time for the visit has been decided between the school and the supermarket, a store-visit document will be sent to the respective teacher.  This will contain all relevant information such as:

  • Contact details for the supermarket owner-operator.
  • Finalised date and time of visit.
  • Suggested activities/topics/questions to cover based on class needs.
  • Policies and procedures required for supermarket access.
  • Information on the sponsored lunch and suggested food choices.
  • References to additional nutrition information to support classroom learning.
