Become informed, thoughtful and creative with money matters.

In this programme we will study the psychology of money; earning, saving, spending and investing money in a way that is relevant to the students' lives.

We will ask some big questions, research and debate answers.  What is the value of money? How much pocket money is enough, why and should you do anything for it?  We will touch on entrepreneurial skills and aspire to become more thoughtful and conscious consumers while beginning to develop our own earning and/or saving strategies.  

As we do this, we will develop and practise mathematical skills grounded in the context of money.
