Ankle Belt – Student Enterprise Awards

A company that has been set up as part of the ‘Student Enterprise Awards’ is ‘Ankle Belt’. This was set up by a team in 5th year.

Team description;

Our product is simply known as the ankle belt. The idea was thought of by one of the team members, Kieran who is an average cyclist who encountered the problem of his pants getting caught in the chain of the bike. Our product is designed to prevent your pants from getting caught up in the chain of the bike. It is basically a clip which will strap around the cyclists leg and prevent the cyclists pants from getting caught in the chain. The clip is designed to keep the cyclist safe and let them cycle without being worried about their trousers getting caught in their bike chain.

This may be a product you’ll use so keep an eye out!

TY Mini Company

TY Mini CompanyOn the 30th of November last, the students in the SGC TY Mini Company ran a stall at the Castlebar Christmas Market in the Breaffy House Events Arena.

In the run up to the event, students made handcrafted products during school time in the hope of selling them to customers on the day. A lot of time, effort and commitment was shown by all students in the class in the days and weeks leading up to the event. Christmas Cribs, Logs, Cards and Festive Treats were made during class time and also after school. The Advertising and Marketing Team of Darragh Judge, Maitiu McCormack, Ryan Gibbons, Cian Mitchell and David Conlon did a great job of making posters and collecting spot prizes from many generous businesses around the town for use in conjuction with the Lucky Dip competition that the company were hoping to run at the market.

The Friday evening before the event we set up the stall with all of our products from 6-8:30pm. On Saturday the 30th of November Students from the company arrived in Breaffy House at 10am to put the finishing touches to the stall in the hope of a busy day ahead. Large crowds entered the arena from as early as 10am in to see what bargains they could find. Our finely crafted products attracted much interest throughout the day which rewarded our hard work and effort. The Lucky Dip Competition was very popular with the customers with some people even entering twice! As the day drew to an end it became clearly evident that the stall at the Castlebar Christmas Market was a huge success for the students of the TY Mini Company.

We would like to thank our TY Mini Company Co-ordinator Ms.Flynn, Principal Mr.Hyland, Deputy Principal  Mr.Hannon, TY Co-ordinator Mr. Kelleher and everyone else who made our Christmas Market a great triumph!
