Thanks Giving Day

by | Mar 14, 2024 | SCHOOL EVENT

At AREDS PLAYWAY School, the spirit of gratitude and financial literacy converged in a heartwarming event known as Thanks Giving Day. This event, designed to instill values of appreciation and responsibility in young minds, proved to be a delightful amalgamation of fun and learning.

The event was inaugurated by Miss Sasha from Belgium.


The highlight of Thanks Giving Day was the ingenious concept of utilizing the saved-up money in children’s Piggy Banks to purchase snacks. Weeks prior to the event, children were encouraged to save a portion of their allowance or any other earnings in their Piggy Banks. This not only taught them the importance of saving but also instilled a sense of ownership over their finances.

With their Piggy Banks brimming with coins and notes, the children eagerly awaited the day when they could put their savings to good use. However, the journey didn’t begin until they obtained the blessings of their parents. This step was crucial, emphasizing the significance of seeking approval and involving guardians in financial decisions.

The atmosphere was filled with laughter and chatter as children proudly presented their savings to the vendors. With each transaction, they gained firsthand experience in handling money, understanding its value, and making informed choices. Moreover, the act of spending their hard-earned savings brought a sense of accomplishment and empowerment.

Thanks Giving Day was not merely about indulging in snacks; it was a celebration of gratitude and financial empowerment. By involving parents, the school fostered a sense of collaboration between home and school environments, reinforcing valuable lessons beyond the classroom.

As the event came to a close, the smiles on the children’s faces were a testament to the success of Thanks Giving Day. Through this innovative initiative, AREDS PLAYWAY School not only nurtured a culture of gratitude but also laid the foundation for a financially literate generation, equipped with the skills to navigate the complexities of the modern world.
