We are Fireman Sam Savings bank!
This year six students in our school were chosen to run a school bank. Our aim is to promote our bank throughout our community. We do this through events targeted at all the different age groups. Also promotions is a big part of our bank and we really feel that this gets people in the community involved! We love love love the idea of the bank going towards the future therefore technology is a big aspect of our bank, we have websites,social media, bank tutorial, safety videos , a game , an app and lots more! Overall bank had been and is continuing my highlight of transition year!!
