Junior Entrepreneur


In Holy Family Primary School, Primary 7 pupils have the opportunity to take part in the Junior Entrepreneur Programme each year.  Through the JEP curriculum, games and learning aids, pupils get a clear picture of what creating a business is all about. The programme is designed to integrate all subjects, with each step providing opportunities for pupils to learn new life skills.

They get to understand how the value of goods and services is created and how skill, talent and creativity can create more than the sum of their parts in an entrepreneurial enterprise. 

The programme works closely with our local community and involves local entrepreneurs who share their story and that of their business with the pupils. This puts entrepreneurship in a local and meaningful context. Every pupil gets a chance to uncover their own strengths and play a key role in one of five distinct teams – Finance, Marketing & Technology, Design & Production, Sales and Communications.

In 21-22 our pupils had a visit from Niall O'Brien from O'Brien's Pharmacies who came to visit our school and gave a very information presentation. Every child was then involved in the design process, pricing and marketing of the final product - a school bobble hat! They worked closely with MFC Sports throughout the process and also raised money for school funds along the way.

Check back later in the year to see what our current Primary 7 children get up to!
