A comic book and a drama have been created to help teach children financial concepts. Citibank has launched a series of activities in collaboration with the Learning Society to promote financial literacy among students. Operation Finance, a colourful comic book, contains five stories. Featuring two young agents, Agent Penny and Will Power, who uncover financial mistakes made by children, the book encourages young readers to spend money wisely and save for the rainy days. To make financial concepts more accessible to children, a drama based on three stories from the book was produced by Jumbo Kids, a local drama group. The show's premiere was staged at Ying Wa Primary School this week. The play, which adopts an interactive approach to allow the young audience to make financial decisions on the spot, proved popular with the primary pupils. 'The students found the play hilarious. The jokes and songs helped raise their interest in financial matters,' said principal Lam Woon-sum. The play turned financial concepts into interesting case studies. 'In one of the stories, a child stole his father's credit card to buy his favourite Twins CDs. After watching the play, the students learned that using credit cards creates debts,' said Ms Lam. 'Most students find finance a boring subject. 'By making the topic relevant to their daily lives, students will be more interested to learn about it. The play is scheduled to be staged in 100 primary schools, and Citibank hopes that students will learn the importance of financial planning at an early age. 'Students should be taught money management skills from a young age. Without proper financial training, they might make poor financial decisions and spend recklessly after they grow up. 'Poor financial management can have grave consequences for both the spender and their family,' said Betty Tsoi, regional director of Citibank Global Consumer Group.
