Financial Wellness Week took place from Monday 12th of November until Friday 16th of November. During this week, with the help of Mrs. Farren, Lucia McCauley Bank of Ireland Youth Co-Ordinator delivered talks to 2nd years right up to Leaving Cert students on the importance of Financial Wellness and underpinning Financial Independence. Talks covered a range of different areas, from Savings, Budgeting, CV and Interview Skills, and reading a payslip just to name a few things covered.
During the week Bank of Ireland School Bank was also set up. This consisted of six Transition Year students. These students went through an application process and an interview. This facility enabled students to open a bank account at school. The students ran the school bank themselves. They advertised via social media, posters, flyers and by presenting the information to different year groups. The School Bank team this year consisted of:
Branch Manager: Aoife Smyth
Sales Manager: Joshua Downey
Marketing Manager: William O’Canain
Operations: Athena McLaughlin
Digi Advisor: Kirsty Gallagher and Callum Doherty
Another fantastic Bank of Ireland School Bank held at Carndonagh Community School; looking forward to next year!
