Financial Awareness Day 2017

Posted at 5:52 pm on 5th February, 2017


On Friday 3rd February 2017 our Year 9 pupils took part in our annual Financial Awareness Day.

The pupils were divided up into teams and faced with the tough challenge of designing and organising their very own school prom. Pupils had to choose the venue, catering, decorations and even the entertainment all whilst sticking to their £4000 budget - but there was a catch !! Throughout the day pupils chose envelopes at random - for some this meant extra money to spend but for others money was taken away causing them to quickly rethink their budget !

The aim of the day was for pupils to work together and for them to plan and budget in order to create their perfect prom celebration - throughout the morning pupils were set the challenge of researching key financial topics and then went head to head in our annual financial quiz. 

A big congratulations to everybody who took part but especially to our three groups of winners who walked away with the prizes !

An added thank you to all of the student teachers from Edge Hill who assisted our teams throughout the day.
