UnPlug Programme - Regaining Focus in a Distracted World

UnPlug Initiative


We are pleased to partner up with the wonderful team at UnPlug to deliver a unique programme to all primary school children attending schools within our common bond.

The programme, the first of its kind in Ireland – Regaining Focus in a Distracted World is designed to raise awareness of the impact that technology and social media have on the lives of young people and promote well-being amongst children in the school setting.
UnPlug is designed to be fun, evidence based and focused on practical steps for positive behaviour change. Find out more about our UnPlug programme here.

School Savings Scheme

We operate a school saving scheme in over 30 local schools. The aim is to encourage children to adopt a regular savings habit at an early age, and in doing so, develop a sense of good financial management for the future. Participating schools receive an annual donation. If you’re interested in setting up a saving scheme in your local school or learning more click here
