St. Gerald’s College school bank was set up this year in conjunction with the Bank of Ireland. The student bankers were carefully selected by Ms Flynn, Business teacher. They were chosen based on their application form, performance at interview along with their personal interest in the area of business and banking.
The student bankers are as follows: Conor Gillardy (Branch Manager), Finnian Martin (Operations & Audit Specialist), David Conlon (Sales & Marketing Manager), Patrick Livingstone & Donal Boyle (Customer Service Officials). They received their initial training from the BOI officials, Ms Sinead Cuffe & Mr Keith Higgins earlier in the year.
The student bankers open the bank every Thursday morning at small break in the canteen and to date they have in excess of forty student accounts opened. There will be a draw for an iPad as soon as they have fifty accounts opened. The student bankers are responsible for all aspects of running a bank as well as teaching their peers the importance of budgeting and saving. The student bankers are currently out on TY work experience but the bank will be open again on Thursday March 13th.

Microsoft has named 22-year company veteran Satya Nadella as its next chief executive officer, while also announcing that co-founder Bill Gates would step down as chairman and advise the new CEO on technology.
The moves mark an epochal change of control at the company that drove the PC revolution.
Mr Nadella, a 46-year old born in India who led the creation of Microsoft’s cloud computing services, is only Microsoft’s third CEO in 39 years, taking over from Steve Ballmer, who inherited the job from Mr Gates in 2000.
The move ends a five-month search process at the Redmond, Washington-based company, triggered by the August announcement of Mr Ballmer’s decision to retire.
Today , the start up companies made in conjunction with the Student Enterprise Awards, presented their business plans to convince the judges to send them through to the next stage of the competition. All teams made excellent presentations and the judges commended everyone involved for their efforts!
In the end there had to be one winner which was ‘Cloud Covers’. Well done to John Dolan, Karl Benson, Matthew Ruane and Seán Tobin who will be getting ready for the next stage of the competition! www.cloudclubcovers.com
