This year we became involved with the Junior Entrepreneur Programme. The senior classes worked closely in groups to come up with business ideas which they presented in a Dragons Den style to local “Dragon” Kevin Lane. After consulting with Kevin, the children decided to invest money in Galtee Gaels/Limerick cups and have been very successful selling almost 200 cups. The children also decided to put the profits towards carrying out work on our school garden and we have been very busy since. Each classroom was given a flowerbed which they planted with cabbage, turnips, carrots, parsley, beetroot, lettuce, cauliflower, onions, sunflowers, etc. The competition between classes has been very interesting!!! We can’t believe how quickly everything is growing. Last week some classes enjoyed a bacon and cabbage dinner using our own potatoes and cabbage. Cian brought us bacon from his family’s farm. This week our 5th and 6th class have been putting the finishing touches to our school garden by painting a mural on the adjacent wall. Thank you to everyone that has supported our Junior Entrepreneur Project and helped to raise money for our school garden.
