This week was finance week at Port Ellen and all the classes have been involved in learning about money, finishing in a finance fair on Friday Morning. Primary 1&2 have been learning about banks and spreadsheets, and have even started saving their money up for the summer holidays. They ran a bank at the exhibition and showed they could count change, and had even made their own piggy banks. Primary 2&3 had made commonwealth animal banks, which included a wonderful anteater and Kiwi bank.

They also were holding a beetle drive in the evening to raise money for a former pupil who is going to help build schools in Africa. Primary 4&5 were selling the soaps they made from their social enterprise, as well as running a how to do spreadsheets workshop. Primary 6&7 had learned about Fair Trade and were selling Fair trade items. There was also a Gaelic Cafe, and you could only buy items if you asked for them in gaelic!
