Business Studies Trip

A-Level and GCSE students were joined by prospective Year 10 business pupils on a successful trip to Butler's Chocolate Factory and Tayto park.  A tour of the chocolate factory enabled students to see batch production in action, which was followed by individual production of our own Easter eggs, followed by an Easter egg hunt.

We then headed on for a lecture on marketing and merchandising at Tayto Park, followed by a tour of the factory, and plenty of time to experience the roller coasters!

A-Level Business Studies and the Build a Bank Challenge

Six budding entrepreneurs from Year 13 AS Business Studies took part in the Build a Bank Challenge by setting up their own bank in school. 

As part of the challenge, they had to come up with an innovative theme that would promote their bank and encourage young savers.

Their slogan "save your money, save your mind" gives an insight into their strategy, which was to promote mindfulness and wellbeing in our school community.  When opening a bank account with our school bank, customers would receive a goody bag including top tips on how to look after your mental health as well as free zumba lessons. 

The team attended the regional final in Monaghan to present their strategy and dressed as super heros to  promote their company name "$aviours".
