On September 13, 2016 Citi and Po Leung Kuk have once again partnered to launch the Agent Penny and Will Power Series for the new academic year 2016/17. This year, for the first time, the program will transform primary schools into Financial Campuses to promote financial education and literacy among students.
To inculcate proper financial knowledge and skills in students, on top of formal classroom teaching, activities that encourage students to actively apply financial knowledge can also be very effective. In this respect, the role and participation of the schools and teachers is indispensable.
According to an evaluation report on the previous year’s Agent Penny and Will Power series, only 30% of the interviewed teacher group felt confident about teaching financial literacy before the start of the program. However, this number soared to over 80% after they attended the training workshops. The results indicate both a demand for teacher training in financial education, and the effectiveness of the activities offered by the series in boosting their abilities to teach financial literacy.
In light of these encouraging findings, the Agent Penny and Will Power Series will place even more focus on enhancing the teaching methodologies in the 2016/17 academic year. The aim is to create a financial learning atmosphere in schools and equip teachers with the proper teaching resources. This all-round approach makes financial education more fun and interactive, and motivates students to develop the right attitude and healthy habits towards money management from an early age.
