Duleek Boys NS hop­ing to be en­trepreneurs

Mid Louth Independent - - NEWS -

DULEEK Boys’ Na­tional School 5th and 6th class boys are tak­ing part in the Ju­nior En­tre­pre­neur Pro­gramme (JEP).

The pro­gramme gives chil­dren across the coun­try the op­por­tu­nity to cre­ate en­tre­pre­neur­ial busi­nesses in their class­room.

The chil­dren got to pro­pose their busi­ness ideas to lo­cal en­trepreneurs and a win­ning idea is cho­sen from each class (Ms.Smith 5th, Mr.Malocca 6th and Mr.K McDon­ald 5th & 6th)

The three win­ning ideas will then go head to head at the Duleek BNS Christ­mas Mar­ket (which will be held on Thurs­day 20th De­cem­ber) where an over­all win­ner will be de­cided.

We were very lucky to have en­tre­pre­neur and busi­ness­man Gavin Duffy (pic­tured) and Dr.Eric Clin­ton (Head of Fam­ily Busi­ness, DCU) as our guest judges.

The boys did a great job at pre­sent­ing their ideas and stand­ing up to tough ques­tion­ing from the dragons. A huge thank you to teach­ers Ms Smith, Mr McDon­ald K and Mr Malocca for get­ting the en­trepreneurs ready.

Also a big thank you to Mr Gavin Duffy and Dr Eric Clin­ton for giv­ing so much of their time to the project and giv­ing some great ad­vice.

Laura McDon­agh and Kadeja Far­rell dur­ing the Mary­mount Girls Na­tional School 3rd and 4th class stu­dents visit to High­lanes Gallery and tour with Artist Claire Halpin.
