Young Entrepreneur Scheme

On Thursday 6th of December, the Y.E.S market day was held in the school gym. There were over 30 teams of young entrepreneurs taking part in junior, intermediate & senior categories. Each group researched, developed and produced their business ideas. Our young entrepreneurs sold everything from bracelets and cards to wall hangings and jam. Each year group had an opportunity to visit every stall and make a start on their Christmas shopping.
