On Thursday our 3rd Year Business Class travelled to Tayto Park as part of their Enterprise Module. This budding group of entrepreneurs raised 500 euro last year by creating a promotional video for the credit union.
They had to spend the money on something educational. The day began with a 1 hour workshop/presentation on the History and the story behind the Tayto brand. The group were then given a tour of the Tayto factory and looked at everything from how the potatoes are washed, to the packaging of the crisps.
The group were also given a tour of the Tayto Park Zoo and had some time to experience some of the entertainments that the Park has to offer.
A word of thanks to Monique Freeman (Aunt of Izaak from form 3) who works for Tayto and provided all of our students with a substantial goodie bag as they left the park.
