“I really believe that Incorporating Personal Finance Education in schools is absolutely vital for the children’s own futures and for the future of the country,” he added.
Students at the school brought Personal Finance Education to life by producing a DVD called ‘Small Change’.
The DVD features a range of different scenarios designed to highlight the importance of money management to their age group.
Working with a professional script writer to create the films, the school also formed partnerships with local shops, offices and a guest house where filming took place.
