This year Transition Year students took part in the AIB Build a Bank Challenge. Flowing formal interviews carried out by AIB personnel six students were selected to be part of the team. They are Sonia Leahy Bank Manager, Catherine Cleary Assistant Manager, Kevin McGreevy Financial Controller, Dylan Dickson, Marketing and Sales, Ellen Tighe and Maia Travers Customer Representatives.

Their bank was called “Strictly Come Banking” and was opened every Tuesday at lunch in the concourse. The team was responsible for opening new accounts, lodgements, and encouraging and teaching students the importance of saving.

The team operated a very successful bank with a total of 36 new accounts opened and still growing! They advertised there bank throughout the year with different promotional methods and an active Facebook page.

The team took part in the regional finals on the 3rd March and although  not placed in the top four represented the school excellently with a impressive stand and great enthusiasm on the day!

We’ll done to the team who have all worked very hard!
