Council brings Enterprise Awareness Day to local schools

Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council in collaboration with Young Enterprise Northern Ireland (YENI) has brought a very successful Enterprise Awareness Day to St Marys High School Limavady.

The Mayor who was invited to the event joined with year 13 students from both St Marys High School and Limavady High school, spent the afternoon learning about Entrepreneurship opportunities. Students in attendance had the opportunity to develop their own business ideas.

Cllr Steven Callaghan said: “I was thrilled to attend this event which was facilitated by Young Enterprise NI.

“It was very interesting to see how students participated and thought of new and unique business ideas.

“This event gave them a chance to develop their teamwork and problem-solving skills through a number of fun, hands-on activities and challenges.

“I truly believe that practical events such as these are of paramount importance in a student’s education.”
