Sixth form pupils are operating the school bank in conjunction with the Bank of Ireland. This is available for all pupils. Students in year 8 and 9 are encouraged to update their savings accounts from primary school.
The bank provides students with the opportunity to save regularly and the use of their own cash card allows them to take responsibility for their own finances. Alternatively, parents can arrange to save using a standing order, and pupils will then receive a 4GB memory pen and a £10 gift voucher.
On Saturday 6th February the ‘P Keenan Road Surfacing’ Rainey ES 1st Xv travelled to Pirrie Park to play Methody in Round 3 of the Danske Bank Ulster School’s Cup.

Takng all this into consideration this was going to be a tough task for the local boys.
