Delyn MP backs better financial literacy for kids

As part of My Money Week Delyn MP David Hanson will on Friday the 6th of June visit the Argoed High School to see firsthand the work they are doing to increase pupil’s numeracy and literacy.

Mr Hanson will visit the school to support the work teachers there are doing to improve financial and literacy education.  The visit comes as part of the sixth national ‘My Money Week’.  Taking place across the UK from 9 – 15 June My Money Week is a national activity week for primary and secondary schools that provides an opportunity for young people to gain the skills, knowledge and confidence in money matters to thrive in society.

Since 2009, pfeg (Personal Finance Education Group)  for My Money Week have provided schools across the country with free resources, lesson plans, Activity Packs, competitions, national challenges, one to one consultancy support and a dedicated website for the highest profile and most recognised financial education initiative.  As with all pfeg initiatives, the Week is designed to be flexible and adaptable so that activities can be changed to meet the needs of individual schools. Hundreds of thousands of young people get involved in the run up to, and during the Week.

David Hanson MP said:

“Being able to plan your finances and manage your money is an absolutely vital skill that will help young people for the rest of their life, so I’m pleased to see the Argoed High School is working so hard to teach their kids about it.

School teaches many important lessons but these sort of life skills are absolutely fundamental, so I’m glad to see the importance they place on it and I wish them every continued success with their programme and the My Money My Week scheme.”
