Personal financial education has become increasingly important, not only for investors, but also for teenagers nowadays. In response, our BAFS and Economics panels co-organized a personal finance drama show with the Live Theatre & The Boys' & Girls' Clubs Association of Hong Kong for our Form 5 students. The drama, titled “都是「碌卡」惹的禍”, was recently staged on the 22nd of February in our school Hall during F.5 Form Assembly.
Through the drama, students identified various financial needs in university life and learnt something important about financial tools, such as credit card and callable bull/bear contracts. Their corresponding advantages and disadvantages were discussed in an interesting way. Last but not least, students were invited on stage to play roles in different scenarios so as to enhance their acquisition of financial literacy.
Better financial understanding is an essential tool for future success. It is hoped that through education, students can adopt positive values and attitudes towards personal financial planning in the contexts of different life-cycle, especially in their coming university life.
