Junior Achievement Programme

Wed, Mar 15th, 2017

Our class took part in the Junior Achievement programme. This is run by Clare County Council and it teaches us how our community works. We learned about the important people and businesses that make our town work properly. The programme was given to us by Norah Murphy, and she visited our class after lunch on a Thursday for 5 weeks. Over five weeks we learned all about our community. We learned about town planning. We learned about the different zones there are for development. Examples of these are - a business zone, multipurpose zone, farming zone, an industrial zone and a residential zone. For example, you are not allowed to live in a zone that is marked industrial because you would have trucks and lorries travelling where children are playing. The course was lots of fun. We all got different businesses to build. We all learned how to be restaurant owners and we even had a pretend Ice-cream shop. On the 3rd week we learned about advertising and how important it is to advertise to the right people so that they keep your
business busy. On the last week we learned about saving money and why we need to use our banks. We
really enjoyed our course and we were very lucky to receive certificates when we were finished.
