The Grange Park Primary School Saver Club is our newest school partnership and launched on 28th November 2018. The Saver Club helps young people get into the ‘saving habit’ in a friendly environment and to learn money management skills.
The School Saver Club is open to all children attending Grange Park Primary School. Membership is free, and children can deposit as little or as much as they wish – from a few pennies to pounds. Collections are held weekly before school from 8.30am on a Wednesday morning in the School Hall.
The Club is run by a team of young volunteer officers from year 6, under the supervision of school staff with FAIRshare providing training and ongoing support.
Year 6 children ‘applied’ for positions, and after careful consideration 2 Officer teams were appointed. Each team has a Manager, an Assistant Manager, Cashiers, I.T., Stationery, Member Services & Marketing Officers. FAIRshare has provided full training, and the children have worked really hard to get the Saver Club up & running, learning lots of new skills in the process.
The Grange Park Primary School Saver Club hosted a fantastic Launch Party during the first Collection.
School Saver Club members deposit money at the Collection using special Deposit Envelopes. Congratulations to Sharon Badu for the fantastic Grange Park Primary School Saver Club Deposit Envelope design.
We have a fantastic Saver Chart designed by our Officers on display in the School Hall. Every time a member saves, they add a ‘sticker’ to the chart.
Children came up with some brilliant ideas for their Saver Chart. After a vote, the winning design was a campfire. Each time a member makes a deposit at the Grange Park Primary School Saver Club they add a ‘log‘ to the campfire! After saving 5 times, they will add a ‘flame‘, after 10 times a ‘star‘, after 15 times a ‘firework’, after 20 times a ‘boy or girl’ and after 25 times a ‘sausage or marshmallow‘ to toast by the campfire! By the end of the school year, we will have an amazing campfire scene on display for everyone to admire!
The young Officers are professional, efficient and friendly and are a credit to their school and the wider community. It has been a pleasure working with them to set up the School Saver Club.
