New News Story from St Matthias
Independent People at St Matthias Academy
This term our year 10 and 11 students have been taking a three part workshop with the charity 16-25 Independent People. The workshops were based on finance and personal budgeting and included activities such as blind taste testing products, making a budget for moving out of home and comparing different financial products.
This work helping the year 11 students with their revision for the Preparation for Working Life exam and, for those who complete all three sessions, there is a stand-alone Personal Finance qualification provided by AQA. The charity will be coming in over the next few months to work with students throughout the school on issues such as finance and homelessness.
