Caol pupils shop around and cash in on fun week of learn­ing

The Oban Times - - NEWS -

CAOL Pri­mary School pupils have been en­joy­ing a week of ac­tiv­i­ties and trips as they learn about money.

De­pute head teacher Sharon MacDon­ald said: ‘Money Week has been a fan­tas­tic ini­tia­tive to build part­ner­ships with our lo­cal com­mu­nity. Ev­ery class has had vis­i­tors and been out on a trip. Learn­ing about money ben­e­fits the chil­dren.’

Pupils of all ages have been tak­ing part, with some go­ing on trips to lo­cal shops where they have been us­ing money in a real life con­text.

Pri­mary one pupils vis­ited Mor­risons where they looked at prices and spe­cial of­fers, learned about healthy eat­ing at the fish and butcher coun­ters, had a shot on the tills, had a look in the ware­house and had a healthy snack in the can­teen.

Other classes have been learn­ing how to bud­get and some have been learn­ing about earn­ing a liv­ing and the world of work.

Pri­mary 4/5 had a Dragon’s Den style com­pe­ti­tion where they had to de­sign piggy banks.
