Mrs Murphy's 5th & 6th class are taking part in the Junior Entrepreneur Programme. This is a 10 week Entrepreneurial Education Programme for Primary School pupils. The class had to develop their own product as part of the programme. The programme helps pupils to develop a number of skills including literacy, writing, presentation, drawing, technology ,research skills , numeracy, financial and consumer awareness, story telling, listening skills, creative thinking, problem solving, team building and collaboration skills. It also has a significant impact on a pupils personal development - building confidence self awareness and self esteem etc.
The product that Ms. Murphys class have developed is called 'Tubtastic' . It consists of a tub filled with snap band, an easter egg, erasers, bouncing balls, stickers, sweets and easter stickers. The reusable tub is retailing at €5 per tub or €4 each for 2 or more. The class feels it an 'eggcellent ' alternative to an Easter Egg gift for Easter. Please support.
