5th class went to Citi Bank and had a great time. We went on a bus to town. We did a lemon stand as our idea. We got a bunch of leaflets and we wrote on them. We stuck them on the board. After that we had lunch. It was so nice. Then we got back to work. Both 5th classes went to their corners and got a board each. Then we got lunch again. That was even nicer. Then we went back to work and got into groups of fives. We did loads of work and then got a certificate. We went back to school.

On the 08.02.18 we went to Citi Bank. When we were there, we learned how to be an entrepreneur. We are taking part in the Junior Entrepreneur Programme (J.E.P.) this year.
We learned how to do all of this with the example of a Lemonade Stand. We learned this in a room called the ‘Fish Bowl’.
We were split into 2 classes- Ms. Phillips’ class and Ms. Monahan’s class. Each class had their on individual ideas.
RTE’s News2day came as well. 6 people (3 from each class) were interviewed by the presenter Tommy.
The six were Jake , Tom. Ava, Matthew, Sadbh and Cara.
We were to pose like the dragons from the TV shoow ‘Dragon’s Den’
It was great fun. After lunch, we were all split into our groups: Product/design, sales, finance, and marketing.
We learned a bit of what we should do and what our responsibilities were from actual marketing, finance, product/design and sales people. After all of the learning and fun we came back to school with just enough time to pack our bags.
