Junior assembly on Friday, 9th February was awash with excited anticipation as the children awaited the announcement of who had won the Credit Union Draw. Joan Sherlock Robertson, who manages the scheme, explained how all regular savers were included whether they lodged money each week or saved up in their piggy banks and lodged monthly. The random, computerised draw done at the Dundrum branch selected Toby Houchin from Ms. Riordan’s 2nd Class as the worthy winner, as he not only comes to CU each week but also lodges his sister’s money if she is in orchestra practice. Declan Connolly of Capital Credit Union presented the €150 voucher for Joe Daly Cycles, along with lights, a lock and other goodies, to a delighted Toby. Declan proceeded to say how happy he was to sponsor the draw and to see so many young savers across the school. There will be another similar draw towards the end of the school year and you can visit the Credit Union section for further information about how it works.
