Sutton Metro Bank Colleagues Empower Green Wrythe Primary School Students through Money Zone Programme

5th March 2024

Shayni Patel, Aiden Rumbles, Alexa Humphreys, and Vithun Vivekanandan, dedicated colleagues at Sutton Metro Bank, have delivered the Money Zone Programme at Green Wrythe Primary School, offering invaluable financial education to year 5 students.


Money Zone is a series of financial education lessons that Metro Bank offers to children - either virtually or in store. Money Zone comprises of four sessions - budgeting, saving, banking and the last session which takes place in store gave 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 to over 250,000 children in 2,900 schools.


Through engaging workshops and fun interactive sessions, Shayni, Aiden, Alexa, and Vithun provided practical insights into the importance of financial responsibility from an early age.


The students at Green Wrythe Primary School loved the session, enthusiastically and actively participating in discussions and activities designed to foster their understanding of financial concepts.


In a heartwarming gesture of appreciation, the Year 5 students crafted a delightful card expressing their gratitude and heartfelt messages to Shayni, Aiden, Alexa, and Vithun for their fun delivery of the Money Zone Programme.
