The PSS students are building on an initiative, which started during the last academic year, when the Business classes of forms four and five held an entrepreneur symposium to showcase products manufactured by the students.

The Dominica Manufacturers Association gave the students an opportunity to participate in the Easter Buy Dominica Campaign; since the beginning of the summer vacation; the students have been hard at work developing new products.
