Ms O'Connor's Fifth Class have been participating in the Junior Entrepreneur Programme. We began as a group with many ideas in December. Following a Dragon's Den in our classroom, we took the advice of our dragons on board and decided to create a Multicultural Cookbook. We were so lucky to have over 20 different nationalities in our school so it was easy to get our hands on some tasty recipes from around the world.
We applied to our principal for a loan and were very lucky to receive one. We sent our recipes and drawings off to the printers and received a fabulous cookbook a few days later. We have successfully sold 350 books and have a great profit. We intend buying games for our playground so that all children in our school will benefit from the money we have made. Our teacher has promised us a little treat for all our hard work also!
