WORLD SAVING DAY
Updated: Nov 6, 2019
“It is never too early to encourage long-term savings.” -Ron Lewis, Former United States representative
In the month of October 2019 we encouraged students to save some money in their piggy bank to buy gifts for the students who cannot afford it.
In the month of Diwali we thought to gift little joy to these children. Thereby, An activity was created for the students as well as for the parents which was named as Piggy Bank Activity to celebrate world saving day. As the day 30th October is marked as world savings day and to celebrate this day, We Gave some homework to both parents as well as the students.
INSTRUCTIONS GIVEN FOR THE ACTIVITY WERE AS FOLLOW:
Piggy bank Activity:
1. Take a small piggy bank ( anything which looks like a saving box example it can be a jar with saving written on it)
2. Tell your child about the piggy bank:
( Tell them why we save money, how you save money, why saving money is important)
3. Everyday add little amount of money in the saving bank. (From today till 30th October)
4. Bring your banks on 30th October to the school. ( make sure to write names on the saving banks)
Children saved money during past 5 festive days in their very creative piggy banks. All the credits for the beautiful piggy banks goes to the parents(Applaud for the efforts.........)
And on 30th October children happily unlocked their small savings to buy some of their favourite goods from the nearby shop on their own. The teachers discussed the concept of saving and ways in which one can spend the saved money. Children willingly took interest in the activity and merrily became a part of it. Then, the children distributed those goods to the economically backward children at the nearby anganwadi centre.
The activity promoted small savings from a relatively early age as a beneficial asset and investing in appropriate ways too.
