This club allows students the time to work on their projects without infringing on class time and gives students a space to seek help and advice from their business teacher.

Enterprise Christmas Fair

TY students organise an Enterprise Christmas Fair in the school canteen. All enterprise students including Enterprise Club teams present their product to teachers and students allowing them the opportunity to browse and buy from the stands on display. The Student Enterprise Co-Ordinator judges the products on display and decides on what groups will be put forward into the Kerry Student Enterprise Awards competition. It was a day of awards and celebration for the hard work completed by the students.

Students from 1st year to 6th year get to set up and run their own business and find out what it’s really like to be an entrepreneur by taking part in this 8 month long enterprise education learning programme.

The Programme runs from September to May, and students get to do everything a real life entrepreneur would do from coming up with the business idea to marketing, sales and preparing a business plan.

At the end of the programme in May, one student business from each region gets to compete at the National Final for the ‘Student Enterprise of the Year’ award.
