Once again, fourth, fifth and sixth classes in St.Theresa’s National were successful in winning a prize in the "Business in the Community – Interview with an Entrepreneur Competition".
Under the direction of Mrs.Mary Butler, they achieved 2nd place in the North Tipperary Entrepreneur Competition.
The project was based on Stapletons Bakery, Borrisoleigh. Following a visit to the Bakery in December, a project booklet, powerpoint and video clip were completed.
The project helps to familiarise pupils with business operations and terminology. The children learn to appreciate the benefits that business brings to the local community in terms of jobs etc.

Tipperary played Clare last Tuesday evening in the Waterford Crystal league in the town park. Over three thousand turned out on a bitterly cold night. The defending Champions Clare ran out winners by 2 points. A late Noel McGrath goal wasn’t enough for Tipperary to bridge the gap. Next for Tipperary is a date under the lights in Semple Stadium against All-Ireland champions Kilkenny.
