12/06/2009 LORETO STUDENTS ENJOY YOUNG ENTERPRISE WORKSHOP

All Year 8 students at Loreto College, Specialist School took part in the Young Enterprise: Your School, Your Business workshop on Friday 12th June 2009.

Led by Young Enterprise Northern Ireland, the day focused on alerting the students to their skills and qualities, and how these might equip them for the world of work.  The emphasis was placed on enabling students to see their school as a business, which included an exploration of the various people who work in Loreto College, and what their jobs entail.  With some help from Year 11 peer mentors, the Year 8 students also worked collaboratively on problem-solving and creative presentation ideas, which helped them to see how their own learning and experience could be put to good use in a more entrepreneurial context.

Miss Sinead McCallan, Learning for Life and Work Co-ordinator at Loreto College, congratulated the Year 8 students on their enthusiastic participation, and paid tribute to the Young Enterprise staff who had facilitated the day.  It is hoped that the experience will be repeated in future years as it proved to be both beneficial and enjoyable for the students involved.
