MONEY matters were on the agenda at St Augustine’s as pupils learned more about budgeting, managing a bank account and planning for life events.
Workshops at the Stonepits Lane school were led by county businesswoman Louise Lewis, whose company Money Plan UK works with schools and colleges to increase students’ financial awareness.
She said: “Having spent 15 years in banking I know how important it is to teach money management at an early age.
“Knowledge of matters such as the importance of saving and the cost of borrowing can make a real difference to people when they come to look after their own finances and certainly enables them to make more informed choices.”
Citizenship co-ordinator Ruth Waite added: “In the current economic climate it is vital that young people help to secure a brighter future by developing an understanding of money management. The sessions run by Money Plan were totally relevant and students all confirmed their understanding of money matters had improved.”
