Financial literacy- Money, money, money, moneeeeeey Money!

Today Room 19 had the opportunity to learn about how we use money and get some advice about how we can make our money grow. We had three wonderful people from BNZ share their expertise with us, challenging us to think about how we access and use money.

Here are a few photos........

We learnt about the Bank cards, ATM's and we discussed what was the best way to look after money.

Thank you very much to the wonderful staff at the BNZ for taking the time to educate us today.

Maths Week was AWE- SUM!!!!

Everyday we worked together to solve a Daily Challenge Question. We had to write our name, room number and the answer to the question on a slip of paper, to enter the daily challenge. Mr Faulder and the AWE-SUM students from Room 16, kindly collected all of the entries, made the draw and delivered the prizes. With Persistence PLUS Focus, we DIVIDED up the question in to parts, SUBTRACTED the words we didn't need to solve the problem, EQUALING problem solving success for us all. Room 19 had MULTIPLE winners during this week.

Please enjoy our presentation.
