Innovative Revision Tool wins big for Davis College!

The fifth year enterprise students of Davis College brought home the coveted title of Best Overall Company at the North Cork Enterprise Board Christmas Trade Fair, held on Wednesday last at Cork Marts, Fermoy. The competition saw a record number of entries from schools spanning all of North Cork. The Davis students designed and produced an innovative, subject specific, revision tool, which aims to enhance academic achievement. The students initially had the idea for subject specific wallpaper but after comprehensive market research found that students thought it was “too permanent”, so they came up with the novel Recall Wall. The award- winning product is targeted at junior cycle students and falls nicely in line with the Department of Education’s recent ‘Literacy and Numeracy for Learning and Life’, the national strategy to improve literacy and numeracy among children and young people. The students were mentored to victory by their enterprise teacher Ms O’Callaghan. These young Davis entrepreneurs are looking forward to progressing their business venture and we wish them every success.
