St Brogans encourages students to save for the future.
For many years now the bank has grown in strength as an integral part of St Brogans facilities for pupils. In the current climate it is most important to encourage students to think of the future and save for a rainy day!!
Mr Gilbert has encouraged the students to invest time and energy into maintaining a high standard of banking in the College. Last Years transition year students have very happy memories of this project and were the first to congratulate the team when they arrived back to the school with the coveted trophy. They go to Croke Park to the final which is in itself a great experience.
The editor had the privilege of accompanying Mr Gilbert and last years team to the final.!!! What a great day. Full of wonderful memories and experiences. We wish the students the very best and hope they enjoy the experience as much as last years students and teachers did!!
