Scotiabank Business Services Centre Team Educates Students on Finances

Never too young to learn!

This was the idea as Scotiabank’s Business Services Centre (BSC) visited the students of the Ann Hill School recently to educate them about personal finance for children and young adults.

The visit was yet another one of the staff-led community outreach activities marking Scotiabank’s celebration of its 60th anniversary in Barbados.

In addition to sharing financial tips with students, the BSC team also reinforced the lessons taught that morning by gifting one lucky child with a $50 Scotiabank savings account.

Angela Goodridge head of the BSC’s Employee Action Team which spearheaded the activities, said the visit was a welcome addition to the regular outreach and volunteering which they do with the Ann Hill School, which caters to children with developmental delays and special needs.

“We have had a close relationship with the Ann Hill School for some time now – holding fundraisers to help buy things the school needs and volunteering with the students. It is wonderful to be able to do even more for them this year thanks to the 60th anniversary staff outreach.”
