TrueTube has provided an assembly script, an accompanying PowerPoint presentation and five films in celebration of Money Week. The assembly script offers two activities which reflect on the dangers of debt and how important it is to have self control when buying what we want and need. It also offers ten useful tips on how to manage money and how smiley salesmen may not always be as kind as they seem. The films also explore the dangers of debt, different perspectives on finance and how to manage money sensibly . When I was at school, there was nowhere near as much emphasis on finance as there is today. If it was built into the curriculum the way it is now in many schools, I think my generation would have felt a lot more confident when taking the first independent steps into the big wide world. My generation relied on the teaching of parents, not the lessons at school. Of course, personal finance is something that should be taught by your parents when you’re growing up, but additional support found at school can only be a good thing.
