Metro Bank colleagues from the St Albans store have delivered Money Zone – a financial education workshop to year 3, 4 and 6 pupils at Margaret Wix Primary School. The aim of the complimentary workshop is to raise financial knowledge in the students from a young age.
Money Zone is a series of financial education lessons that Metro Bank offers to school children – either virtually or in store. Money Zone comprises of four sessions – budgeting, saving, banking and the last session which takes place in store giving the children a behind the scenes look at the Bank including a visit to the vault and the chance to try the Magic Money Machine. Metro Bank has delivered its Money Zone programme to over 250,000 children.
St Albans Metro Bank’s Assistant Store Manager Ash Sharif and Customer Service Representative Marianna Kavalieros delivered the key Money Zone sessions to the students and are currently looking forward to the last and exciting session, the store visit. During this visit, the pupils will enjoy an hour tour of the bank and vault whilst discussing what they have learned in the sessions.
“We’re very pleased to have delivered our very first Money Zone workshop,” says St Albans Metro Bank’s Assistant Store Manager, Ash Sharif. “Learning how to budget and save are fundamental skills which everyone should have and we are happy to help the children develop a healthy relationship with money from a young age. We are looking forward to delivering more Money Zone sessions to local schools.”
Any schools or groups interested in Money Zone can contact their local Metro Bank store for more information.
