Tomás Diskin & Sinead Cuffe from the Bank of Ireland pictured here presenting a cheque for €600 to St Gerald’s College. The cheque was presented in recognition of the 50 accounts that were opened by the school bank team.

The target at the start of the school year was to have 50 accounts opened by April. The school bankers opened the bank every Thursday morning and managed to reach their target. As a result of this the school was presented with the cheque and an iPad was raffled between the 50 account holders. The winner of the iPad was Patrick Corless, TY.

SGC School Bank

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.
