Dragons’ Den in 5th and 6th Classes

The pupils in 5th and 6th Classes worked in groups and created four new business ideas.  They worked on all areas associated with a business, such as advertising, finance and production.  They then had to pitch their businesses, Dragons’ Den style, to two dragons, looking for investment.  This was a very interesting and worthwhile experience which encouraged teamwork and entrepreneurship.  Thanks to Nadia from Bizworld for all her work and guidance over the two days.  Thanks also to Darren from Bank of Ireland and Mr. Maher for being very good dragons.
