The Transition Year Business students have been taking part in the Student Enterprise Programme which is run by the Louth Enterprise Office.
This programme allows students the opportunity to learn about entrepreneurship as well as brainstorm about their own ideas for their business. It aims to foster an enterprise culture among students.
The annual Louth County Enterprise Competition takes place virtually this year. Bush Post Primary School is represented at county level by three mini companies following intense in house competition.
The Awards will be live streamed on YouTube and Facebook on Friday 26th March between at 11am and 12:30pm:
There will be some short speeches, a Student Quiz, Teacher Raffle and Educator Award and of course the Awards themselves, where we will find out which mini-companies will progress to the SEP National Final on 14th May to represent Louth in Junior, Intermediate and Senior Categories.
