Pupils at every school in Lancaster and the surrounding area are being given the opportunity to learn more about money and personal finance during the sixth annual My Money Week, run by financial education charity Personal Finance Education Group.

This year the aim of the Week, which will run from June 9 to 15, is to give schoolchildren in Lancaster and across the country a head-start in financial education before these vital life skills become a compulsory part of the new National Curriculum from September.

Last year local schools including Lancaster Girls’ Grammar School, Bowerham Community Primary School and Dowdales School took part in the week by organising financial education activities for their pupils.
