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.

TY Mini Company

TY Mini CompanyOn the 30th of November last, the students in the SGC TY Mini Company ran a stall at the Castlebar Christmas Market in the Breaffy House Events Arena.

In the run up to the event, students made handcrafted products during school time in the hope of selling them to customers on the day. A lot of time, effort and commitment was shown by all students in the class in the days and weeks leading up to the event. Christmas Cribs, Logs, Cards and Festive Treats were made during class time and also after school. The Advertising and Marketing Team of Darragh Judge, Maitiu McCormack, Ryan Gibbons, Cian Mitchell and David Conlon did a great job of making posters and collecting spot prizes from many generous businesses around the town for use in conjuction with the Lucky Dip competition that the company were hoping to run at the market.

The Friday evening before the event we set up the stall with all of our products from 6-8:30pm. On Saturday the 30th of November Students from the company arrived in Breaffy House at 10am to put the finishing touches to the stall in the hope of a busy day ahead. Large crowds entered the arena from as early as 10am in to see what bargains they could find. Our finely crafted products attracted much interest throughout the day which rewarded our hard work and effort. The Lucky Dip Competition was very popular with the customers with some people even entering twice! As the day drew to an end it became clearly evident that the stall at the Castlebar Christmas Market was a huge success for the students of the TY Mini Company.

We would like to thank our TY Mini Company Co-ordinator Ms.Flynn, Principal Mr.Hyland, Deputy Principal  Mr.Hannon, TY Co-ordinator Mr. Kelleher and everyone else who made our Christmas Market a great triumph!
