Brainstorm! Our Junior Entrepreneur Project Is Underway! @JEP_National

Business moguls beware, the pupils of Craggagh NS are feeling bullish and are poised to launch a new business in the coming weeks!

We have broken out into 5 groups and are currently working on separate ideas.

The 5 ideas at research stage right now are:

  • Doggie Bags
  • Healthy Smoothies
  • Wholesome Cupcakes
  • Handmade Soap
  • Customised Candles

In a couple of weeks, our groups will enter our “Dragons’ Den” to pitch their ideas. The best idea will then be adopted by the whole class as our “Big Idea” and the business will begin in earnest.

We have spent the last few weeks studying famous entrepreneurs such as Steve Jobs of Apple and Ingvar Kamprad of Ikea, local entrepreneurs like Shane Gilmartin in Kiltimagh or Mary Flanagan in Balla. We also looked at some case studies for other schools’ projects.

Today, we’re researching costs of supplies, how much of an investment we may need, how or where we might sell our products and what jobs, tasks and skills will be required.


Italy in the middle room


We will be learning all about Italy in the middle room for the next few weeks. We are currently learning about life in Italy. We have found that there are many differences and similarities between life in Ireland and life in Italy.

We are using books, maps, pictures and the internet to learn about the geography of Italy, life in Italy and of course the history of the great Roman Empire!

Here are some good websites you can use to do some research at home!
