Student Enterprise Awards

Student Enterprise Awards


This March students from 4th year LCVP class and TY attended the County finals of the Student Enterprise Awards. 62 groups with different business ideas entered from schools around Clare. Students in groups of up to 5 must set up a company and come up with a business plan. They must decide on a product, develop it, market it, sell it and make a profit. At the County Final all the schools in the County that have students entering, set up a display stands to show the judges their products.

Four groups entered from St Joseph’s, three from TY and one from 4th year LCVP. All groups had unique ideas. Their projects included Craft Hurleys, Price Tag Jewellery, T-5ive t-shirts and Fusion Candles.

This year extra awards were added, such as awards for best stand, best business plan, best innovative idea. Every group involved had to display their product and this was one area St Joseph’s had an advantages in over other schools. All the stands put together by St Joseph’s were very well designed and this effort paid off. “Fusion” the group from 4th year LCVP class won the prize for best stand display. Fusion which was an abbreviation for Fabulous, Unique, Individual, Optimistic, New was created by Ellen Culloo (Managing Director), James Flynn (Production Manager), Clare Flynn (Financial Manager) and Kate Daffy (Marketing Manager).

Well done to all students involved. Special thanks to Ms Michele O’Sullivan for her hard work and dedication throughout the year. This did not go unnoticed as she picked up the “Teacher Enterprise Award”.
