21 May Business Students Celebrate Completing Business Projects 2018
5th Year Business students in Dundalk Grammar School were asked to research, as a group or individual, a Business of their choice, and to submit their findings as a bound typed-up Report. In all, 15 Businesses were researched, from local to national.
The students hosted a Presentation Event in the School to present their finished Reports to representatives of the various Businesses covered. Businesses who attended the Event included IBM, National Pen, O’Callaghan Insurance, The River Cafe, Apple, P & A Quinn Ltd and Ulster Bank.
The students made short Presentations on their Reports, and then presented each Business represented with a copy of their Report. Each representative present gave a short Presentation on their Business. The students had laid on refreshments for their guests.
Michael Gaynor, President Dundalk Chamber of Commerce, was in attendance, and he gave an upbeat Presentation on his assessment of the future economic development of Dundalk.
The Presentation Event was a fitting and positive conclusion to the months of work put in by the students to their Reports. It was evident to all present of the work they had put in, and of the learning they had got out of their research, which had included visiting their chosen Business, meeting with staff, and collating all the information gathered. A most worthwhile and constructive Project.
Students presented with awards for their Reports were Emily O’Hare and Ruth McGahon (The River Cafe), Aaron Quinn and Evan McDonald (P & A Quinn Ltd), Finn Reilly (The Olympic Council of Ireland), Alex Burgess (Westgate Veterinary Hospital), Sean Durnin, Rachel O ‘Brien and Serena Matthews (missing) (The Great Northern Distillery)
