December 2014: Learning how to manage money

hh money web

PRIMARY School pupils learnt all about money matters when Year 9 students from Haslingden High School visited.

The Able, Gifted and Talented students have been trained to be Money Mentors and now deliver lessons about managing finances in local primary schools. To date they have worked with pupils from Broadway, Stubbins, Healey and Edenfield.

The Debt Aware Money Management programme was developed and written by secondary school students in order to ensure that primary school children are taught about financial management to help avoid future problems such as debt.
