Transition Year Build a Bank Challenge
About Build a Bank
This year we decided to take on the AIB ‘Build a Bank’
challenge. The aim of the bank is to set up as many bank
accounts as possible with the students here at St. David’s and
potential saving schemes with senior students.
This is the first time in a number of years we have entered the
competition. The bank is called ‘The Mind Bank’ linking in with
our theme of positive mental health and wellbeing. The slogan
for our bank is #yourfinancesyourfeelings.
Positive mental health and well-being is a very common and
relatable topic. We also felt that it is important to spread
awareness in the area and that the issue deserves more media
attention. We want to spread the message that it is ok to talk
and share how you are feeling. We plan to raise money for the
charity ‘turn2me’ and other charities raising awareness for
We will also have a Twitter account where you can see a live
feed on the St.David’s official website. We are also using other
social media platforms such as Instagram.
Keep up to date with the developments of our school bank
though social media and other activities and events to be
announced during the coming months.
