On Tuesday the 14th March ‘Bank without Borders’ represented the school in the regional finals of the Build a Bank Challenge in the Hillgrove Hotel, Monaghan. There were 32 schools who presented their banks with 8 banks qualifying for the national finals in April. Unfortunately the team were unsuccessful on the day but it was an amazing experience for the 6 students, they even got to meet Colm Cooper.
Ms Gallagher facilitates the programme and mentors the team every year and she would like to thank Eimear Kelly, student officer from the branch in Manorhamilton for helping the team throughout the year. To Caz Cards for providing promotional material for the competition, To EJ’s menswear Sligo for providing ties and to all of the banks customers who supported the ‘Bank without Borders’ team.
