The boys in 6th Class have been participating in the Junior Entrepreneur Programme this year. The Junior Entrepreneur Programme (JEP) is an entrepreneurial awareness and skills enhancement programme for Primary School children, created & developed in Ireland!
The pragrame aims to help children recognise enterprise and entrepreneurship and to foster an awareness and understanding of the entrepreneurs role in the community therefore empowering the child to start to think and act with the initiative, creativity, independence and ideas that are invaluable in the modern world.
As a result of their involvement with the JEP, the boys in 6th Class have set up their own companies and are selling three different products:
Ms. Holmes’ Class: Customised Mugs
Mr. Minnock’s Class: Drawstring Bags
Mr. Mulreid’s Class: Drinks Bottles
They are having their Showcase Day tomorrow, Tuesday March 28th in the Library in Scoil na Mainistreach, from 9:00am – 11:00am. They are inviting the public tomorrow, in particular parents and all members of the school community, to come along and to have a look at their wonderful products and to support their business endeavours!
Thank you in advance for your support,
Scoil Na Mainistreach JEP Team 2017
