  • 1. Balsall Common Primary School Balsall Street East, Balsall Common, Coventry CV7 7FS Tel: 01676 532254 Email: office@balsall-common.solihull.sch.uk 10 September 2015 Press Release - for immediate release. _____________________________________ Primary School Opens its own Bank Balsall Common Primary School pupils have for some time been demonstrating their entrepreneurial spirit through Flourishing Fivers and Dragons’ Apprentice and have now opened their own bank! Year 5 pupils will be running the bank under the supervision of HSBC staff. Anne Lowe, Schools Liaison Officer at HSBC BANK PLC and Noreen Burgess, Business Implementation Manager, also from HSBC, were on hand to help out with the launch. Pupils had to apply for positions on the team, such as Bank Manager and Cashier, and had to undertake an interview prior to selection. The School Bank was officially opened by Councillor Glenis Slater, Mayor of Solihull, who impressed upon the children how important it is to learn money management skills and save for their future. Every child that opens an account is given a red safe money box so that by saving they can watch their pennies become pounds! Howard Rose, Funding and Publicity Manager at Balsall Common Primary School said: "A big thank you to HSBC for their support in setting this up. I know it has already encouraged a lot of the younger children to start saving for the future. It has also been great for the older children to learn about banking and perhaps consider a career in finance in the future". Photo:
