The Kildare Local Enterprise Office runs a Junior Enterprise Programme for senior primary school pupils each year.
This year we have been successful in securing a place on this programme. All 45 6th Class students will be involved in the programme run over 3 Wednesday mornings (19th, 26th October & 9th November).
This programme aims to make the world of business accessible to primary age children prior to the transition to secondary school. The programme introduces the concepts of entrepreneurship and business in an interesting and innovative way.
The programme also has a significant personal development impact on pupils building confidence, self-esteem, self awareness and an appreciation of individual skills and talents. The final session in November will be a “Dragon’s Den” style one. Looking forward to nurturing and fostering the business moguls of the future!
