Rachel Mc Partlin will represent St Clare’s Comprehensive School and the Sligo/Leitrim region in the Youth Entrepreneur of the year awards on Tuesday the 15th of May 2018 in The Royal College of Physicians of Ireland Dublin. Rachel will deliver a 10 minute speech to a panel to 4 judges with a 5 minute question and answer session. Rachel under the mentorship of Ms Gallagher set up her business Rachels’ Heavenly Homemades in October which is a home bakery specialising in Gluten Free products. Rachel has invested much time and effort into her business and now stocks Rooney’s Supervalu in Manorhamilton and Kate’s Kitchen in Sligo with her produce.
18 innovative start up businesses involving over 50 young people will be celebrated at the event on Tuesday. The young entrepreneurs were chosen as finalists from 1,000 young entrepreneurs who set up start-up businesses as part of the Foróige Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE) programme this year. The programme empowers young people to develop core skills in business and enterprise to help them unlock their individual talents and potential.
The whole school community would like to extend their best wishes to Rachel in the All Ireland Finals on Tuesday.
