Enterprise Club

Enterprise Club 2015 – 2016

The First Year enterprise students had a very busy year.  Each student worked tirelessly creating a quality product for sale for the Christmas market. Some students worked in groups while others worked individually and gave their company a catchy name. Some even created their own website! Products made included: Personalised Frames, Button Art, Sweet Treats, Reward Me Charts, Handmade Decorations and Book Hogs.

Students continued to boost sales by selling their products at school and in the Community.  To our delight an article was published in the Clondalkin Echo about our enterprise clubs in Collinstown.  Meanwhile students needed to work hard to produce a business report, detailing all aspects of their company and product.  They needed to include a marketing plan and financial report too.  The annual Student Enterprise Awards took place in IT Tallaght on Friday 4th of March. A great day was had by all. All students presented their business concept to a panel of judges.  Two awards were received by two of our companies: Reward Me Charts & Ben & Shanes Frames.  Ms McNamee and I were so proud of all of our enterprise companies.  They represented our school very well. We look forward to another year of continued success at the Enterprise Awards
