Prestonfield Primary School held a money week from Monday 8th to Friday 12th February. It was a fun filled inter-disciplinary approach to learning where children learned about money, and the management of it, through a wide range of activities.
I was invited to a special showcase event at the end of the week, along with parents and other supporters of the school. At the event, every class made a short presentation (even the Primary 1s) about what they had learnt during the week. We heard about class visits to places such as The Museum on the Mound (The Money Museum) and the Trustee Savings Bank (TSB) at Cameron Toll Shopping Centre. One class even had a visit to Pizza Express to learn about how a real business works.
