We were lucky enough to have Biz World from Bank of Ireland visit us and run their entrepreneur workshop with us. The boys were split into groups and asked to come up with a viable invention to market to their peers and the boys in Fourth & Fifth Form.  On Day 2, each group presented their ideas in a Dragon's Den type format with two representatives from Bank of Ireland and Mr. Stephens acting as the dragons.
