12/05/2011 ENTREPRENEURSHIP MASTERCLASS FOR LORETO COLLEGE STUDENTS

All Year 9 students at Loreto College Coleraine, Specialist School, took part in an Enterpreneurship Masterclass run by Young Enterprise NI on Thursday 12th May 2011.

The half-day programme aimed to provide students with an understanding of what is involved in setting up and running a business.  In the course of the workshop, students engaged in activities designed to give them
an understanding of the skills, attitudes and behavioursof entrepreneurs and an opportunity to consider self-employment as a career option. The activities in which the students took part were designed to help  foster their inspiration, enthusiasm and vision as well as to develop their entrepreneurial skills.

Ms Shaunagh Brolly of Young Enterprise NI, who led the masterclass, commented that the Year 9 students had participated with great enthusiasm and had shown great promise and determination in the activities throughout the workshop.  Mrs Sinead McNicholl, Citizenship and Employability Co-ordinator at Loreto College, paid tribute to Ms Brolly and to the Year 9 students following a lively, enjoyable and stimulating day’s active learning.  Mr Brian Lenehan, Principal of Loreto College, commended Mrs McNicholl, who had organised the day, along with Ms Shaunagh Brolly and the Year 9 students for their enthusiastic and constructive participation in such a memorable day of learning.
