The Bank of Ireland School Bank has been designed to support schools in providing financial education to students. It gives students the opportunity to work in the School Bank branch across a variety of roles from Bank Manager to Customer Service Official learning about banking and how to work as an effective team. The School Bank also provides the opportunity for students to open a bank account and makes it easy for them to save on a regular basis, via frequent onsite School Bank visits. The Student School Bank team will be supported by experienced Bank of Ireland staff members from the local branch to ensure the smooth operation of the School Bank, and to support the team with any questions and queries they may have.
The school bank operates on Wednesdays from 12:30 to 13:40 where students can set up a bank account and lodge money. To open an account students must lodge €5 and complete an application form.
