Rang 5 and 6 are currently participating in The Junior Entrepreneur Programme. JEP is a 10 – 16 week entrepreneurial education programme for primary school pupils. This innovative programme opens the minds of primary school pupils to the joy of entrepreneurship at a time in their lives when they are full of imagination and open to new possibilities. The programme helps participating pupils to develop a number of skills including literacy, writing, presentation, drawing, technology, research skills, numeracy, financial, consumer awareness, storytelling, listening skills, creative thinking, problem solving, team building and collaboration skills. The programme has a significant personal development impact on participating pupils, building confidence, self-awareness and self-esteem, and an appreciation of individual skills and talents
To date the pupils have been working in groups, discussing the own ideas and personal strengths. Each group then went forward to present their ideas to our Dragons Miss Lynch, Miss Murray and Mr McArdle. The successful idea on the day was Peggy’s Furniture (Clothes Peg Furniture). Watch the space over the next few weeks are their class develop this project!
