Build a Bank
6 TY students (Chloe Griffin, Grace Kelly, Melanie Coady, Sarah Barry, Ciara O’Halloran, and Sarah Clarke) launched their entry into AIB’s “Build a Bank” competition on Wednesday 26th January with the help of local celebrity singer Johnny B!
Johnny B cut the ribbon to officially launch the bank named ‘Gogglebank’ and now students in Scoil Ruáin will be able to open bank accounts in AIB through the school.
Johnny then entertained the crowd with his songs ‘Wanna Play County’ and ‘This could be our year’. He was assisted in singing the ‘Premier Rap’ by 2 first year students Ava Heffernan and Erin O’Brien. Johnny also welcomed the school band on stage for a few numbers and wished them well in their upcoming ETB talent event.
A great day was had by all. Johnny concluded by telling the students to make sure and put a few quid in the bank for the future!
On Wednesday, the 25th of January, our 1st year team (Falcons) had a decisive win over Ardscoil na Mara, Tramore on a scoreline of 38-9. Samantha Doherty was on fire and scored 22 points. Well done to all involved.
