Welcome, Parents and Teachers.

Because money doesn’t grow on trees!

Money management is an important skill for adult life. Too often, an understanding of saving and borrowing is learnt the hard way.

Save By The Bell wants to develop financial understanding, an awareness of money management and encourage the habit of saving in young people.

Supported by Dundee City Council and Discovery Credit Union Ltd, Save By The Bell runs savings clubs in a number of primary and secondary schools in Dundee.

A savings point is set up once a week in the primary school where pupils can put money in their account. Pupil volunteers act as tellers. They receive training to do this and are supervised and supported by an adult. This is something the pupils enjoy and they learn new skills.
