Only Ogham

Only Ogham

Only Ogham is a junior entrepreneur programme that the fourth, fifth and sixth classes in Clondra national school have taken on. They are making slates with Ogham writing on them they have all different name and you can place an order by contacting the school. They went through all the hoops for this business and had their very own Dragons den with local business people. The kids are so excited about the business as they have been out selling in Longford the last two weeks. The children have sourced their raw materials from the re tiling of the school roof. They have recycled the old tiles, they then wash, dry and then they do the writing on them, then they varnish them. The slates make a great present for any house. Don’t forget to place your order!!!
