The School Bank team have been celebrating a superb opening week, with many students keen to open accounts and get involved. The team have big plans in place to start the new year on a high and get the whole school involved in making it a real success! Student accounts will be active in January and they can begin to save.
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.
