“The art is not in making money, but in saving it.”
In order to inculcate the art of saving money, grade II was taken to IDBI bank, situated in By pass road on 21st of July, 2017. Children started from School with great enthusiasm to learn all about banking and saving. And in order to heed to their excitement, the Bank Manager herself, in spite of her busy schedule spent her valuable time in explaining about the Pay in challan, cheque and cash counting machine. Children also cleared their doubts regarding banking. The bank people were surprised to hear our children talk about CDM and ATM. They also did share their knowledge on using Debit cards for purchase.
The children did also raise their queries on loans. The children’s inquisitiveness and knowledge on banking did surprise the people. C.K. Harini of Gade 2C, Nandeesh of Grade 2B and Tejesh of Grade 2 A were appreciated as they came up with many intellectual questions. When children were educated on the importance of having an account for themselves, many came up telling that they do have an account and few who did not have wanted to open an account. Thus the very purpose of the visit was met.
