17/06/2014 FINANCIAL CAPABILITY COURSE FOR LORETO COLLEGE STUDENTS

Loreto College Coleraine played host to a Financial Capability course for all Year 8 students on 17th June 2014.

Organised by the College’s Economics and Mathematics departments in conjunction with CCEA and Danske Bank, the event was an opportunity for students to engage in a range of interactive activities aimed at highlighting and increasing their awareness of personal finance issues. It also gave them the opportunity to work in teams and to interact with professionals from outside agencies, namely Andrea Colhoun of Danske Bank Coleraine.  All of this was geared towards developing the students’ skills, knowledge and confidence so they could make more informed and effective decisions about their own finances.

Mrs Anne O’Kane, Head of Mathematics and Mrs Stacey Mellon, Economics department, who co-ordinated the course, paid tribute to all those involved from the Loreto College Mathematics Department.  Mr Michael James, Principal of Loreto College, commented that the course had offered an excellent opportunity for the students to put their learning into the context of everyday life.  Mr James paid tribute to all those who had led the course, and to the Year 10 and Year 11 students who had acted as peer mentors throughout the event.
