Newbury Building Society is delighted to have assisted 10 different projects in the latest round of its community support scheme funding.
What is Junior Newbury Building Society?
Our financial education initiative for schools
Designed to provide financial education lessons to local schoolchildren, the initiative encourages positive, healthy discussion around saving and spending as well as promote money savvy long-term habits.
The scheme consists of a series of activities and projects designed to teach children the entire savings process – from start to finish – by opening their own ‘branch’ within the school.
Role play, such as encouraging children to understand the role of a cashier, teaches children the mechanics of a savings account in an interactive and fun environment.
We provide in-depth and interactive training sessions to equip the children with the skills they need to successfully run their own branch at school. It’s always a pleasure to watch the pupils grow in confidence, work as a team and excel in understanding excellent customer service and money management.
