Metro Bank colleagues from the Solihull store have delivered Money Zone – financial education workshops – to 90 pupils from Greswold Primary School. The aim of the complimentary workshop is to raise financial awareness in students.
Money Zone is a series of financial education lessons that Metro Bank offers - either virtually or in store. Money Zone comprises of four sessions - budgeting, saving, banking and the last session which takes place in store gives the students a behind the scenes look at the Bank including a visit to the vault and the chance to try the coin counting Magic Money Machine. Metro Bank has delivered its Money Zone programme at over 2,500 schools and 250,000 children.
“As a community bank, we are committed to our free financial education programme,” explained Solihull Metro Bank Store Manager, Kulvinder Dhana. “All the children were delighted to come into store and the highlight was meeting our mascot Metro Man. Learning how to manage your money, budget and save are fundamental life skills that everyone needs to learn. We are proud of our Money Zone programme and the difference it makes in giving these students a good grounding in their financial education, whilst still being fun and engaging. We received fantastic feedback and the children were very enthusiastic and excited to learn.”
