As part of our Youth Programme our Summer Bicycle Draw is back again. The bicycle draw competition is designed to encourage our younger members to save. The competition’s objective is to encourage children to save a little bit on a regular basis and to remind them that they don’t have to spend all of their pocket money at once. Teaching children the benefits of saving and managing their money is a life skill that they will continue to use in their adult life.

GR8 Saver Week

TIPPERARY CREDIT UNION LAUNCHES ROCKIN’ YOUTH FINANCIAL EDUCATION INITIATIVE

GR8 SAVERS WEEK RUNS FROM 6th – 12th MAY 2019

Tipperary Credit Union is encouraging children in Tipperary & Limerick to get rocking with their savings this May! The credit union launches its ‘GR8 Savers’ financial education initiative this week (May 6th to 12th). The financial awareness week aims to get parents and teachers talking to children about the importance of saving for the future.

Experts believe that the age you learn about responsible money management and how to save has a huge impact on how you will handle finances as an adult. The wide-scale study by behaviour experts at Cambridge University also revealed that financial habits in adults are typically set by age seven. So it is never too early for children to start learning prudent financial behaviour!

Speaking about the Gr8 Savers initiative, Pat Shanahan CEO TIPPERARY Credit Union said: “A huge part of our ethos at Tipperary Credit Union is financial education for the community. As part of our commitment to the local area, we want to ensure that our future generations are financially educated and empowered. Sound financial planning and prudent money management are skills that can be nurtured from a young age. Encouraging children and young people to develop a regular savings habit during GR8 Savers Week can assist them greatly in the future, especially when they need to manage budgets while at college or in their first job. So we’re encouraging all children to rock on down to us here at the credit union and open their very first savings account!”

The awareness week is designed to be fun and enjoyable for young people, while also highlighting the value of money and the benefits of prudent spending.  It’s also an opportunity for young people to learn about the not-for-profit ethos of their local credit union and the fact that we will always be there for them in the future, offering fair and affordable loans for whatever they might need, be it college, a new car, a holiday or their wedding day”.

Download our free fun activity sheet for your child here GR8-Savers-2019-Activity-Sheet.

Tipperary Credit Union has also put together some of their top tips for teaching children how to develop a healthy and responsible attitude to money.

  1. Consider rewarding children for regular saving. Don’t focus on the amount saved, but the fact that they are developing a savings habit. Supporting and rewarding them to save even very small amounts on a regular basis will help to imbed the habit.
  2. Help young people to decide on a savings goal. They will find it much easier to save regularly when they are savings towards something they really want.
  3. Dissuade young people from spending their savings on impulse. Remind them of their savings goal and what they originally wanted to save for. Share with them a story of something that you would have saved for when you were younger.
  4. Help young people to develop a savings plan, calendar or mood-board to highlight when their goal will be achieved. Having a visual prop or a visual ‘countdown’ can also encourage them to stick to their target.
  5. Give pocket money or allowances in small denominations and encourage them to put a little aside. Giving them a transparent piggy bank or jar so they can watch their money physically increase, is also a good idea.
  6. Consider linking pocket money and allowances to chores or responsibilities in the home. This helps to embed the idea that money must be earned. The more effort required to earn their money, the less likely they will be to spend on impulse or all at once.
  7. If pocket money and allowances run out at an early stage, don’t rush to replace them. Providing additional money at the drop of a hat will defeat the purpose of giving a set allowance.
  8. Why not bring them in to Tipperary Credit Unionto open their own credit union account. This will give them a sense of independence and responsibility.

Transition Year Bursary Awards 2019

Transition Year Bursary Awards

Tipperary Credit Union has a very proactive Youth Committee that runs various youth initiatives throughout the year. One such initiative is the Transition Year Bursary Awards, which is now in its fifth year. We at Tipperary Credit Union are aware of the benefits of a student completing the Transition Year programme. Designed to help students develop not just on an educational level but also on a personal, social, and vocational level it has a very positive effect on the student. The cost of putting a child through Transition Year can range from €500 to €1,000 depending on the school. As a result of this very costly expense the Transition Year Bursary was created.

  • Tipperary Credit Union offers five €500 bursaries, one to each of the five secondary schools in our common bond.
  • The Transition Year Bursary is an open draw and requires students to fill out and complete an application form and return it to our Head Office (Emmet Street, Tipperary Town, Co. Tipperary).

The following are a list of the participating schools:

Castletroy College (Castletroy, Limerick), Scoil na Trionoide Naofa (Doon, Limerick), St Anne’s Secondary School (Tipperary Town), St Ailbe’s Secondary School (Tipperary Town) and The Abbey CBS (Tipperary Town).

Information & Rules

  • Bursary application forms will be sent to all participating schools.
  • If you attend any of the five schools but have not received an application, forms can be collected in our Head Office in Emmet St, Tipperary Town or downloaded from the link below.
  • Students must be participating in next year’s Transition Year programme starting in September 2019 to be eligible to enter.
  • Students must return completed applications to Tipperary Credit Union, Emmet Street, Tipperary Town, Co. Tipperary.
  • Closing date for entries is the 22nd of March 2019.
  • Winning applicants are selected based on their application form and response to the question: What would it mean to you to win the Bursary?
  • The winning student if not already a member of Tipperary Credit Union will need to open an account with Tipperary Credit Union prior to receiving the bursary.
