Congratulations to Presentation Secondary School, Castleisland, Co. Kerry on winning the county final of the student enterprise award in social innovation.

The County Finals of the Student Enterprise Awards took place on the 5th of March in Tralee I.T.

Fifth year business students from Presentation Secondary School, Castleisland entered this competition whereupon they received the award for social innovation.

The entrepreneurs wrote and published a book called ‘Yes now I get it’.

This book was written through the medium of social stories, to help and guide children, especially teenagers who have autism.

These stories illustrate how to cope with situations faced by teenagers on a daily basis.

In the production of this book, the students learned valuable lessons from the experience – showing great initiative, creativity, communication and teamwork skills.
