Kirkcolm Primary School

– what have we been up to?

Talking Money! £££


On Thursday we were lucky enough to have a Teams meeting input from the lovely Stacey who is Financial Capability Officer at Money Talks Scotland. This was an exciting opportunity for the pupils to chat and learn form people form outside agencies.

Stacey had a fab and interactive presentation which got the pupils thinking about what sort of things we ‘need‘ to spend money on and what are the more frivolous things our money goes on. I must say, I was very impressed and proud of the answers they were coming up – quite the savvy’ lot! 

We then took a quiz and had to figure out what the average price was for certain things across the whole of Scotland, this looked at rent, food shop and they’re on hobbies and we quickly realised just how much these things can add up! 

On a final note, we discussed ways we could act to keep our financial costs down and once again the pupils were filled with great ideas – very resourceful. Some of these included growing our own food or making our own clothes or cutting down on takeaways throughout the month. 

It was a great input and we are very glad for Stacey to make the time for us, the pupils proved themselves a money smart bunch! 

… Still couldn’t quite guess how much the average house was though! Something to come back to later in the year! £100?? If only!
