Junior Achievement Ireland Workshops March 2019
Mrs Little's 6th class participated in the Junior Achievement Ireland (JAI) programme recently delivered by Josephine Connolly, Abbott Ireland, Cootehill. JAI encourages young people to remain in education and helps them develop the skills they need to succeed in a changing world. JAI is part of a worldwise organisation bringing entrepreneurship education to over 10 million young people each year. It was established in Ireland in 1996 and since then has built up a strong demand from schools throughout the country and created successful partnerships with 160 leading organisations. Josephine used the following programme with 6th class:
Energize (10–12 Years)
Energize, a partnership between JAI and Gas Metworks Ireland, explores the world of science and engineering in a fun and exciting way. The exciting world of science is all around us. Energize encourages pupils to continue with science in second level education and beyond. It explores the world of science; health and wellbeing, forensics, energy, safety and light.
Thanks to Josephine and Abbott Ireland for facilitating the workshops which were enjoyed by 6th class.
