Year 14 Dublin Trip

Year 14 pupils visited Dublin as part of their Partition of Ireland A2 course.  They toured a number of significant sites including Dublin Castle, the National Museum of Ireland, Leinster House, Croke Park and Glasnevin Cemetery. Everyone found the trip really beneficial and the amount of information absorbed will hopefully be reflected in fantastic examination results in the summer!

Many thanks to Mr Quigley for arranging the trip.

Mrs Dougherty.

Young Enterprise 2016

Young Enterprise - Year 10 Project Business Seminar – Thursday 4th February 2016  
Project Business brings the world of business and enterprise to life.  It provides a dynamic and eye opening experience for Year 10 students as they take on the role of a small business for the day.  On Thursday 4th February 2016, the Year 10 pupils attended a half-day business seminar successfully co-ordinated by Gail Hamilton (Training Manager) who was ably assisted by the AS Level Business Studies students.
 After a few ice-breaker games to get the pupils ‘warmed up’, the Year 10s were soon gaining an insight into enterprise and an introduction to GCSE Business Studies.  The pupils explored a range of key business concepts through a variety of practical group-based activities, such as setting up their own bead making business.  The teams of pupils had to buy various materials from their suppliers and create beaded bracelets to sell to customers.  The pupils also learnt about health and safety in the work place and quality control.  Following this activity, the pupils had to demonstrate how they would deal with an incident of bad publicity in their business.
