What is Business?
Our current third year students are studying the older Business Studies Curriculum and they have been exploring topics such as Money & Bnking, Economics and Cashflow Forecasts. We are delighted that our first and second year students are participating in the new Junior Cycle Business Studies this year. First years students have been examining Personal Finances during their 11 week rotation and exploring how our choices impact others, the planet and the economy. Second year students have been busy exploring Global & Ethical Consumerism and expanding our awareness on such an important topic.
The new specification for junior cycle business studies focuses on improving students’ understanding of the business environment and on developing skills for life, work and further study through the three inter-connected strands: Personal Finance, Enterprise and Our economy.
