Year 5 visit Societe Generale

A Year 5 trip to Societe Generale in Richmond-up-Thames saw our 9 and 10 year olds turn into Financial Advisers! 

Year 5 had a fantastic day at Societe Generale in Richmond-up-Thames today.

In the morning, the children learnt about how banks work and how and why banks lend money. Then they had a tour of the building where they got to ask employees about their jobs and what skills they needed to perform their roles.

In the afternoon, the children took on the role of Financial Advisers. They were tasked with advising a family on how best to spend their money in the build up to their new baby arriving.

A brilliant day by all accounts.
