Following RTE’s Teresa Mannion’s news report during the storms that hit the West Coast of Ireland last December, Mr. Jason M. Cotter’s Enterprise students were inspired to set up and name their mini-company ‘Rainy Day Savings’.
Rainy Day Savings was set up by the TY students using computer equipment which was sponsored by the local Credit Union to offer an innovative savings scheme to students who have some spare cash, which they would like to save for their ‘rainy days’. When Teresa Mannion heard about the student project she was keen to meet with the students and give her support and on Friday, 26th February Teresa visited the students at Presentation College Athenry and officially launched their business.
Teresa said ’It is great to see students getting involved in enterprise and I wish them the very best with their business venture’.
The students will represent the school at the Local Enterprise Office (formerly City and County Enterprise Board) Student Business Awards this March.
We wish them the best of luck!
