The ‘inside out’ TY Bank for St Brigid’s Secondary School was launched recently. The aim of the initiative is to help students in our school become savvy savers and learn about the importance of money and saving while also giving back to the school and its students. The theme of our bank is ‘wellness’. On Monday the bank was launched in the school canteen to a very excited welcome from both staff and students. During the year different events will be held to raise money for our school. For the launch the girls were able to set up a hamper to raffle off among their customers thanks to the generosity of the businesses in the town.
The girls would like to thank their sponsors: Sheahan's Pharmacy, 4 star pizza, Sewell's Pharmacy, Lir, Auntie Nellie's, and Gloria Jeans. The bank is open every Monday in the school and all are welcome. Link teacher Ms. Brosnan said “It’s great to be a part of the AIB Build a Bank challenge and for the girls to be so involved and enthusiastic about their bank and giving back to the school. It’s a wonderful opportunity for them to open their horizons and to get the experience of running a small bank like this.”
