No learning experience is complete without ĠEMMA FTIT, a play highlighting basic concepts: – Budgeting, – Saving, – Spending, – Prioritisation, – Understanding the difference between needs and wants.
This very interesting play evolved around the importance of money saving, financial planning and distribution. Through this short but effective play, children could notice the negative impact of constant spending. Moreover, even spending everything on one particular item was mentioned too. Students were also given the opportunity to discuss about the significance of such bad decision making and its possible consequences. They definitely understood the importance of saving for future situations which could occur and the need to have a financial backup if needed. Such plays have a clear learning outcome for our students who got the message and enjoyed themselves too.

Well done to Gemma and the running film and Mr Rodney.
Gemma interacted with the pupils and passed on to the pupils very important values: those of not spending all you have on the first occasion; not saving all the time and then spending it all at once; not to ask for money when at the grandad etc
It was well adapted to our pupils and they learnt from this interaction while enjoying the acting. We also took photos which we will upload on our school’s FB Page.
Thanks for giving us this opportunity and best regards,
Head of School – Lawrenz Primary School
I would like to thank you for the Gemma Ftit play carried out today at the Learning Support Centre.
The students were highly engaged in the interactive presentation. The person animating considered the background of the students during the presentation. The students enjoyed it and followed thoroughly.
