    Pupils at Danestone Primary in the Bridge of Don, Aberdeen learnt about the value of money after receiving funding from the Union Square’s Community Bursary scheme. Special lessons in management using fun teaching aids like huge coins, gigantic credit cards, large baskets and play chip and pin machines were used.

    Giant Money

    Some of the Bridge of Don pupils also visited the Union Square Aberdeen Shopping Centre where they met the school’s Community Bursary mentor, David Sweetin from Howards Storage World. The aim of the visit was for the children find out more about sales, and managing cash.

    Giant Credit Cards

    Jacqueline Lamont, depute head teacher, at Danestone Primary School said:

    Managing money is one of the most important and challenging features of our society and we all have to learn to ‘balance our books’, even at pocket money level. This is a chance for the school to support the pupils in developing this vital lifelong skill.We thank them for the funding. It has really allowed us to bring to life these important lessons!

    The school’s initiative will also involve a cash-prize competition, which will see pupils battle it out to come up with a resourceful idea that could benefit the school.

    Giant Cheques

    Penny Godfrey, marketing manager, for Union Square said:

    Danestone Primary’s idea is a great one to help introduce an understanding of saving and spending at an early age. The project encapsulates exactly what the Community Bursary is all about. We’ll look forward to welcoming the children as part of the learning experience.

    The Community Bursary scheme was introduced to help support a number of charitable organisations which benefit the local community. Since opening in 2009, they have donated £40,000 to 25 community bursary beneficiaries.
