CHILDREN from Year 4 at Herringham Primary Academy have been working alongside Metro Bank. During weekly sessions, the children have been learning vital life skills which included the importance of bank accounts, saving and interest.
The weekly sessions culminated in the children visiting the Metro Bank in Basildon Town Centre.
During their visit, the children were able to get an exclusive ‘behind the scenes’ tour of Metro Bank where they were able to see the inside of a real vault!
One child on the trip said, “I loved going to the Metro Bank. It was great to see how everything works and we even found our own treasure in the vault!”
