Our 5th class pupils had the fantastic opportunity to take part in the BizWorld Ireland’s “Dragon’s Den” workshop on 17th and 18th December 2018. On the first day the children were given guidance as to how to approach their projects and on the second day they presented them competently to the panel which included Ms Finnegan, Head of the Primary School, a representative from Bank of Ireland and Irish hockey world cup finalist Deirdre Duke.
The children came up with some fantastic business ideas and did very well in their negotiations about getting funding for their projects from the members on the panel.
At the end of the competition Deirdre Duke kindly signed hockey sticks for the children.
