Young Enterprise Company Programme 2014/2015
A group of Year 13 pupils in Sacred Heart College started the Young Enterprise Company Programme in September 2014. The Young Enterprise programme is carried out as part of their Enrichment Programme. The idea behind Young Enterprise is to set up and run their own business, which will develop the pupils skills and qualities e.g. team working, problem solving, communications, organisation and planning. All of these skills are essential in today's society and by undertaking this programme the pupils are developing their life skills. This year the pupils decided to set up a Social Enterprise, where the aim of the business is to provide a service and help the local community. The pupils used recycled jars and tins and changed them into creative, unique products. The glass jars were hand designed to create a product which would hold makeup brushes, money, hair clips, paint brushes, whereas the tins were used to design a plant growing kit for young children. The pupils sold their products at a local trade fair in December 2014 at Main Street Omagh. Both products were very successful and the pupils at Sacred Heart achieved 2nd place. At the end of year 'Celebrating Success' event in the Titanic Quarter Belfast Sacred Heart pupils recieved the 'Best Social Enterprise' business in the Sperring and Lakeland Region. A big well done to all pupils involved.
