Student Enterprise Awards Competition, Tuesday March 5th, 2019

Enterprise Week

This year three out of nine mini companies have been successful in securing a place at the Student Enterprise Awards Competition held on March 5th in the Carrickdale Hotel.  The TY students participated in the Dragon’s Den interview in January. The students presented their ideas to the dragons, Ms O’Connor, Ms McCartney and Rob Marr from the Louth Enterprise Office and were asked a series of questions about their product/service. They also wrote up a detailed business plan on their company idea which was presented to the Louth Enterprise Office.

Congratulations to the three successful TY mini companies – The Bucketless Mop, Bookworm and The Sink Saver.

The Bucketless Mop is a mini company set up by TY students, Joseph Gillan, Manus Cassidy, Cathal Donnelly, Declan Crilly and Keith Hughes. The boys have designed an innovative product in the form of a “bucket-less” mop for the domestic and commercial industry.

Bookworm is a mini company set up by TY students Ella Boyle, Shauna Murphy, Tara Rice, Rosa Cassidy, Lauren Long and Matilida Corcoran. The girls produce beautiful home decorations using the art of book folding.

The Sink Saver is a mini company set up by TY students Anna McArdle, Ciara Donnelly and Ciara Carolan. The girls have designed a beauty accessory and cosmetic travel organizer which you can secure over any sink to display and store toiletries and cosmetics.

Also, this year for the first time Bush Post Primary will be represented by two third year students, Kerry Morgan and Mirela Patrauceanu at intermediate level in the SEA competition. The girls have set up and managed a mini company, ‘Tick Tock Teeth’ in third year as part of their Business Studies. They design customised, decorative wooden toothbrush holders for young children.

We wish the students all the best in the Student Enterprise Awards Competition 2019.
