AIB BUILD A BANK REGIONAL FINALS 2018

BANK 4 WOMEN 

The Bank 4 women team participated in the Regional finals of the AIB Build A Bank competition on Monday 5th of February where they delivered a presentation to the judges about the Bank and it’s message to the students at Pres Tralee – encouraging the students to be SHE-roes – strong, confident and encouraging and empowering women in society. While the team were unsuccessful on the day, it was still a very worthwhile experience. The girls will continue to run the bank in school on Thursdays at lunch-time and all students are encouraged to get into the habit of regular saving.

ECO UNESCO PROJECT ON LYME DISEASE

TY students at Pres Tralee are again participating in the ECO Unesco Young Environmentalist Awards. One group from Ms. O’Donoghue’s Science class is doing a project on Lyme disease. The aim of the project is to increase awareness of the disease, how it may be contracted and how to avoid it. Some of the students - Áine O’Sullivan and Ruth O’Connell - attended a recent Tralee Town Park Run where they addressed those participating on the day – providing key information. The group are also holding a Tick Awareness Day on Friday, February 23 in town, where they will be around the streets of Tralee from 10am to 4pm informing the public about ticks, which is how you contract the disease. The girls will also be telling people about how to avoid getting bitten by wrapping up, spray on bug repellent, wear long pants and long sleeves etc.

Other members of the groups include: Aisling O’Connell, Mary O’Connell, Niamh Rahilly, Laura Scanlon ,Natasha Tobin and  Doireann Thomas .IMG 2657 a IMG 2670 aIMG 2670 a
