Heathermount partakes in 'My Money Week'

This week and during its official week (8th - 14th July), Heathermount is partaking in the nationwide event 'My Money Week'. This initiative has been introduced to help inform students of the importance of money mangement and through integration into lessons across the curriculum, teach invaluable tools to enable them to be careful with their money when entering adulthood.

So far we have had maths lessons focused on giving our students the time to independantly research different types of bank accounts so that the terminology involved can become more familiar. Also, PSHE lessons have been based on budgeting to introduce the concept of sensible spending and the consequences of getting into debt.

A trip to local branch of Barclays bank is in the process of being planned so that our students can meet people from the banking world who will be able to provide first hand knowledge of how to safely manage money.
