More than 200 primary school students from nine schools in County Monaghan are taking part in an enterprise project supported by the County Monaghan Fund.
As part of the project Four classes are completing the Our Nation programme.In this in-depth and action-packed programme, students role-play business ownership, produce a product using different methods of production, look at the costs associated with running a business, create product advertisements, and take charge of their own businesses to make a profit!
Five classes are taking part in the Our World programme. Through hands on activities each week students explore STEM skills and the role they play in the future of the business world. Exploring how technology and communications are vital growth areas in the global marketplace, students examine entrepreneurship and develop their own business ideas.
“To succeed in life young people need education and skills. Business skills should be learned at an early age and for that reason The County Monaghan Fund are delighted to be working with Junior Achievement Ireland on this project” Michael Treanor Chairperson.
