Visit from Danske Bank

16th Mar 2022

Jane from Danske Bank made a visit to our class to speak to the children about their savings account that is available to them and also all about budgeting.

Budget Task - 
The children were given a task of choosing a house, mode of transport, whether they wanted pets and finally their expenditure on bills etc.  They had to stay within a budget and I can safely say that most of the children were in debt after the first bill came into their household!!🤭. They have a loooooonnnnnnggggg way to go when it comes to budgeting!! 🤣🤣  Let’s just say I wouldn’t want many of them looking after my bank account!

It really got the children thinking about what it is like to live within a budget and that you can’t always have everything you want and that many wise decisions need to be made in order to stay out of debt.💷💷 

Many thanks to Jane again for taking the time out to come and speak to us👏👏
