On Wednesday 9th November, many of our Blue class pupils accompanied by their parents and carers attended the launch party for the Guy Fox 7th book ‘Saving, Investments and Pensions’. Here is what Martina and Emily had to say about the special evening.
‘We had an amazing time on the 9th floor of City Hall. It started with a quiz about savings, pensions and how to invest your money. Money cannot buy happiness but it can buy you the things you need to survive and help you enjoy your life. The message we have for you the reader is that starting a saving account is the best thing you can do! A saving account is a bank account that allows you to put some money aside and earn some interest on it. Another way to make your money go a long way is to invest it in hope that it will make you more money. As you get older, you need to start putting money in a pot for your old age.
The volunteers from Willis Watson Towers were fantastic and so was the food! We had some scrumptious fish and chips and some delicious mini burgers!
Andy Haldane the Chief Economist at the Bank of England showed us a ONE HUNDRED MILLION bank note! He was really impressed with everything we learnt during the Guy Fox project. Everyone had a great time and our book look wonderful!
Thank you to Kourtney from Guy Fox for allowing us to take part in the project!’
