Money matters for East Ham pupils
MONEY matters were on the agenda when pupils from an East Ham school paid a visit to Canary Wharf.
Children from Brampton Primary School learnt about the importance of money management during a visit to the global headquarters of Barclays, which was organised by Newham Education Business Partnership (NEBP).
Robert Pope, project manager at NEBP, said: “The Barclays Money Skills programme with Brampton Primary provided a platform for young people to learn about money in a corporate environment that they will not have experienced before.
“It was a pleasure to facilitate the group with the support of volunteers from Barclays. “Students undoubtedly learnt a great deal about using money from the workshop.”
Working with the support of volunteers from Barclays that included cashiers, bank managers and mortgage specialists, the pupils took part in a number of activities.
