JASA hosts More than Money in a day for Global Money Week
As part of Global Money Week, JASA teamed up with the Banking Association of South Africa and the Gauteng Department of Education EMS to host the More than Money Programme in a Day at the Mveledzandivho Primary School in Chaiwelo, Gauteng. Grade 7 students from this school and two others in the area learnt about the value of money and how to manage it through interactive activities and games.
Junior Achievement South Africa facilitated the sessions with the assistance of teachers and volunteers, which included Petros Maneje from @OperationHOPESA, a Banking Association South Africa partner. The teachers underwent training on the course content a week before the event.
Peter Van Wyk, Deputy Chief Education Specialist at Gauteng Department of Education, commented that it would really be good to see more of these types of interactive activities and games in the curriculum. “When you engage them like this the learners enjoy it very much," he said.
