School Holiday
2018 June - Indoor Activity Bazaar @ MCS
Learning how to manage finances may seem to be a grown-up concept but it is never too early to start teaching our children about managing money. We shared the objectives of this journey, what they can learn, how they can go about being a happy buyer and a better saver through ways of earning and spending money. Making sure your child has his or her own money is the first step towards teaching money management. Parents allow their child to participate by giving them $10 as the base amount to start off. At the end of the jouney, depending on how much they earn or spend, parent to allow them to keep the money so that they can see the end result of their effort. Each day, we will set up bazzar hours for buying and selling to take place. Your child will bring something to sell to their peers or teachers during bazzar hours. We had gotten a parent to sponsor the piggy bank for all. Coincidentally, he is a risk management specialist whom I thought is a right match in giving our students a healthy message in learning alternative ways to save as they grow. A couple of students made their own items at low cost and sell to their friends with a profit. Making of book mark was taught two years back by our craft teacher, Yong Jia during school holiday. Yi Ting took the opportunity and reproduce self-made book marks. Ahmad made his own paper bomb and Jing Ting made a handsome amount by selling self-made slime. She and Yan Kai had topped the chart in earning the most at the end of the bazaar.
