BANK 4 WOMEN
The Bank 4 women team participated in the Regional finals of the AIB Build A Bank competition on Monday 5th of February where they delivered a presentation to the judges about the Bank and it’s message to the students at Pres Tralee – encouraging the students to be SHE-roes – strong, confident and encouraging and empowering women in society. While the team were unsuccessful on the day, it was still a very worthwhile experience. The girls will continue to run the bank in school on Thursdays at lunch-time and all students are encouraged to get into the habit of regular saving.
