29/04/2014 ENTREPRENEURSHIP MASTERCLASS FOR LORETO COLLEGE STUDENTS

All Year 9 students at Loreto College Coleraine, Specialist School, took part in an Entrepreneurship Masterclass run by Young Enterprise NI on Tuesday 29th April 2014.

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 behaviours of 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.

Karen McShane, of Young Enterprise NI, and Maria McLaughlin of the Northern Bank, 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 Stacey Mellon, Citizenship and Employability Co-ordinator at Loreto College, paid tribute to the course leaders and to the Year 9 students following a lively, enjoyable and stimulating day’s active learning. Mr Michael James, Principal of Loreto College, commended Mrs Mellon, who had organised the day, along with the course leaders and the Year 9 students for their enthusiastic and constructive participation in such a memorable day of learning.
