Global Money Week was staged in school between 27-31 March and was a very exciting opportunity for financial learning, activities and trips out. There were opportunities for parents to engage with some of these activities.
Global Money Week opened this year with a BizYNight. This was a special event created for students from years 2-9 and their friends. Students spent a night in Royal School and felt the school spirit. During the event, they were allowed to bring two friends to enjoy the atmosphere and to feel the rhythm of music together. The event started at 7 p.m. and the BizYNight organizing committee started the night with a karaoke competition along with teachers and students. Other activities included Wii, X-Box, movies, board games, dance competitions and lots of fun!
of Young BizStarters kicked-off with a general assembly, which included a motivational speech by our student Sasha and a money dance (among many others). Students from years 4-9 then attended the 3D printing presentation, where the teachers from ‘Universitatea Tehnică’ showed the students how the 3D printing is working by printing a little robot and a small tag with the word ‘Royal’.
The afternoon brought a visit to the Polisol and Dog Assist. Looking forward to the rest of the week! #GMWSelfie, #GMW2017, #GlobalMoneyWeek
