Pupils at Killowen Primary School in Coleraine have taken part in a competition aimed at developing an awareness of business and enterprise.

They participated in a project focusing on paper marking and products as part of the Primary School Challenge, organised by Sentinus.

The pupils visited a link business, The Ban of Ireland in Coleraine as part of the initiative.

Within the business, the pupils recognised their individual strengths, whether it was production, market research, design, finance or advertising and promotion.

Each had an important role to play.

K3, Killowen Kidz Kompany, produced handmade Valentine cards and decorated jars of hearts.

The products will go on sale in the school.

Once the project is complete it will be entered for a Gold Level Primary School Award.

Sentinus is a not for profit educational charity which works with schools and colleges throughout Northern Ireland to deliver programmes which promote engagement in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) and support the development of young people by enhancing their essential life skills to more than 50,000 students annually.

The programmes encourage the development of links with business and industry.
