A visit from HSBC in Year 5

Lily CollinsYear 5, Kangaroos, Wombats


Today Year 5 were lucky to have some visitors from HSBC to talk to us about making smart choices with our money. We talked about what it means if a product is ‘good value for our money’. We learnt that sometimes shops advertise items at a ‘cheaper price’ but it’s important to research to see if really is cheaper and if we are really getting the best deal. We were even tested on our math’s skills to decide the best deal in 3 different situations. We considered if there has ever been a time where we bought something that it turns out we didn’t really need – is this the best way to spend our money? We also learnt the difference between a debit and credit card and the age restrictions around these.
