1961-2011     Fifty years ‘with wisdom and courage’

Dragons’ Den

Transition Year students competed this week in the regional Dragons’ Den competition, held in the Bank of Ireland, South Mall. Five teams from Regina Mundi College were selected to compete in the regional competition on the basis of their original ideas. The five teams and their ideas were:

Porcelain Make Up with an SPF 50 – Sarah McEvaddy, Megan McAuliffe and Maeve O’Sullivan

Teenjobs.ie – Caoimhe Lydon, Alison Desmond and Emer O’Sullivan

Focal Iontacá – Alex Whelan, Lauren Burke and Jennifer Chadwick

Magic Mitts – Cliona O’ Callaghan, Zoe Fitzpatrick and Aisling Deegan

Eclipse Sun Visor – Leah O’Keeffe and Edwina Li

The students presented their ideas and answered many questions from the judging panel. We are delighted to have received the news that three of the groups (Porcelain Make Up, Teenjobs and Focal Iontacá) have been selected to participate in the National Final. The National Final will be held in Dublin in early December and will be filmed for broadcast on RTE television. Many congratulations to the students and their teacher, Ms Chadwick.
