Dragon’s Den in Rang a Cúig!

Congratulations to our fifth class students who received the Bank of Ireland Enterprise Town Student Award for their participation in BizWorld! During BizWorld, the students created a product that would help society in some way. They also developed a business plan and pitched the idea to a Dragon! The students created excellent products and impressive business plans. Ideas such as light up backpacks, home gym/fitness apps and homeless outreach initiatives to name but a few! I’m sure we’ll see them on Dragon’s Den in no time! Well done fifth class!
