Visit from a real “Dragon’ to 5th Class

Ms. Fay’s fifth class were extremely lucky because they had a real “Dragon” visit their classroom to talk to them about entrepreneurship.

Ms. Alison Cowzer, who is a past pupil of St. Brigid’s is co-founder of East Coast Bakehouse and a Dragons Den investor. She was so generous with her time and she spoke to the class about her time in St. Brigid’s and her journey to becoming an entrepreneur. She took time to hear all about their JEP project and provided some advice and tips.

She was so kind in bringing the class some delicious biscuits from her company.
We really appreciate her time, advice and kindness especially as she is such a busy lady.
