Newry Junior Chamber in conjunction with the Southern Regional College hosted the first ever Dragons Dens session.
Seventh year students completing the Starting a Business Module within the 2nd year ‘Diploma in Business Studies’ class presented their business start up proposals to the Newry Junior Chamber Dragons; Siobhan Nugent (Bank of Ireland), Bernie Canavan (Ulster Bank) Paul Duffy ( Duffy Accident Repair Centre) and Martina Murtagh (SP Mc Keown).
Dragons commented on the high level of detail, research and knowledge that was included within the presentation and the business plans which is a testament to the SRC staff and thanked the SRC for helping Newry Junior Chamber bring the idea to fruition.
Business venture ideas ranged from nightclubs to internet cafes to restaurants and prizes were allocated as follows: Liam 1st, Michael Finan 2nd, Rachel Morgan 3rd.
The overall Business Studies Student of the year was awarded to Alison Jones.
