Congratulations to Transition Year students Roise-Mai Booth, Ailish Ward, Ciara Cassidy, Colm Mc Gloin, Eadáoin Feehily and Matteo Melis who were selected to represent the school in A.I.B’s Build A Bank Challenge. The students have decided to call their bank “Intercounty Capital”, whereby they are focusing on a GAA theme and in essence the clubs of the surrounding four counties which feed into Coláiste Cholmcille.
Intercounty Capital will open for the first time on Thursday 29th November at break time. It is envisaged that the school bank will encourage students to open bank accounts, register for Internet banking and become regular savers. Their chosen specialism is “Backing our School” which will involve the students planning fundraising activities to raise funds for the purchase of school sports gear and equipment. The students will compete in a National competition in the RDS in Dublin on March 13th 2019.
