On the 13th and 14th of June, 5th and 6th class were delighted to take part in a two day workshop in partnership with Bank of Ireland working on a project called BizWorld. The pupils learned about the elements involved in developing a business and the importance of team work for a successful company. It was a fantastic opportunity for all the pupils. Everyone had the chance to work as a director of a company while learning about the world of business.
The workshop really came to life when the pupils had to come with a business idea and try to sell the idea to prospective investors Mr Howley, in search of investment(bizbucks)- similar to the popular TV programme “Dragon’s Den”.
Here is a collage of some of our projects! 5th and 6th class really enjoyed this workshop and thanks to Rachel, Laura and Brian for allowing us to participate.
