Wexford Credit Union School Savings

Wexford Credit Union operates a school savings scheme in the following primary schools:

  1. Kennedy Park School
  2. Mercy School
  3. CBS Primary
  4. St John of God School
  5. Scoil Mhuire Barntown

This scheme is being run to help teach children the savings habit by giving them access to a credit union savings account in their own school. However now that Wexford Credit Union has ceased attending the schools until next September, the children still have the ability to continue to save into their account throughout the summer at the office in Anne Street. The child must have their book with them for any withdrawals. Should a parent/guardian wish to carry out any transactions on behalf of the student at the credit union office on Anne Street, the full joining procedure will be required, please see below for details:

If a parent/s or guardian/s wish to operate the account, please provide

  • Proof of each parent/guardian’s identification:
    • Current Valid Passport
    • Current Valid Driving Licence
    • Current Age Card with Birth Certificate / National Identity Card
    • ML 10 form with photo signed by a member of the Gardaí
  • Proof of each parent/guardian’s address, dated within the last three months:
    • Household Utility Bill, e.g. ESB, Eircom, Mobile Phone bill

For Minor Accounts the following documentation is required:  (under 16 years of age)
