Junior Entrepreneur Programme 2017
6th Class students from Le Chéile have ambitiously and successfully completed The Junior Entrepreneur Programme. The recognised programme designed for primary school teaches new life skills and aims to enable the children to think like entrepreneurs.
The programme involved 6th class students coming up with unique business ideas and developing these ideas into sellable products. Two business ideas were selected from each 6th Class and further developed by the class group. The children learnt about costs, pricing and set about producing the products. Through their hardwork the children also learnt about production deadlines!
The highpoint of the programme came on Showcase Day, Thursday 27th April, when the Le Chéile ETNS PE Hall was taken over and all the learning, hard work and team spirit came together. All the school children were invited throughout the day to visit and view the shop stalls and buy items if they wished.
There were, Take it n’Bake it recipe jars, Dangles – personalised door hangers, Release the Rage – Stress Balls and Key Blings – unique keyring designs to choose from.
Following the event the children are busy evaluating the results and achievements, and we hope to see more from the Junior Entrepreneur Programme in the future!
