The Central Bank of Ireland welcomed local primary students to their new offices for the first time this month.
Students from fourth, fifth and sixth class in Scoil Chaoimhin, Dubin 1 took part in a financial literacy workshop led by 17 very enthusiastic Central Bank business volunteers. The atmosphere was fantastic in Central Bank throughout the morning, with both students and volunteers really engaging in all the activities.
After an action packed workshop, students were very fortunate to meet with Governor Philip Lane and even had the opportunity to ask some questions about his role in the Central Bank. Finally, students were given a guided tour of the Visitor Centre and learned about the history of currency in Ireland and how money is made through an interactive tour.
To wrap up a very interesting and educational visit, students were treated to a lunch before departing back to school. Thank you to the Central Bank of Ireland for welcoming local students into their new offices.
