Teaching children how to save! - in the news

Nell Nicholson

Last week I heard on the radio on the way to school about a school that teaches children how to manage money through an in school banking system. Apparently the government want to roll out the model and pilot it in some church schools.

I felt quite proud really as we're already half way there! We have our virtual bank books with children 'earning' money and receiving certificates to 'cash' in and our shop to spend in. We find out who the savers are and who are the spenders!! Not to mention fines that need to paid for breakages....

It would be good to know if anyone else heard this in the news last week and what you think of the idea.
