Newham Money Wise Challenge

7th Apr 2022

On Thursday 31st March over 100 children from schools across Newham took part in a gaming based personal finance competition at Stratford Youth Zone. The aim of the challenge was to elevate the financial and digital literacy of young people through an educational approach to gaming. Teams from each school battled it out by speed answering questions on personal finance topics. A big well done to St Helen's who finished it in first place;  St Winefride's who came a close second and St Francis’ achieved fourth place.  It was great to see so many children in the Trust with great financial awareness. Prizes and certificates for the winners were awarded by the Mayor of Newham, Rokhsana Fiaz.  Well done to all of the schools and children involved.
