Junior Entrepreneur Programme
Ms Delehanty’s 5th class have been working on business ideas for the J.E. programme. Last week in Phase One, they pitched their business ideas to three Dragons: Mrs Comerford, Mr Nolan and local business woman Nora O’Malley. Five business ideas were presented: All Star Smoothies, Lucky Lads, Heavenly Bakers, LESCCO- Car Valeting and Family Fitness. The presentations were of an excellent standard-well researched, clearly explained and questions answered comprehensively. After much deliberation and bearing in mind the various requirements for the next stage, the judges agreed that the “Lucky Lads” would be the business to progress.
For Phase Two, the whole class now will put their collective talents behind getting this business up and running for Showcase Week. They will meet with some local business people/entrepreneurs for advice and guidance. This has been a hugely beneficial project for the class. Many thanks to Ms Delehanty for taking it on board and look out for the “Lucky Lads” coming soon!
