Today Tuesday the 23rd of February, Savvy Savers, the school bank, had the official opening of the school bank.
After weeks of preparation from all the team members, the day came and was a great success. Guests included Minister Áine Brady, Councillors Paul Kelly and Catherine Murphy, as well as our special guest John Murray of The Business on RTE. We also had press there form the Liffey Champion and The Student Press.
The event began with our meet and greet, and myself and Pamela, the Assistant Manager gave a speech to all those present informing them about our bank and thanking them for coming. Lots of sweet treats, tea and coffee were to be had by guests, staff and students. We were delighted to have a few words from Mrs Barry also.
Pamela, Meg and I were interviewed by Mr John Murray for The Business on RTE and lots of pictures were taken by the local newspaper.
A special thanks to the TY students that came along to help out, all the teachers especially Ms Mc Mahon and Ms Wheatley, for their ongoing support. We really appreciate it all.
Next event for the bank team is the National Final on Wednesday 3rd March, and remember our blog and Facebook page have constant updates of our work.
