Boarding 9-10: Boarders learn how to spend, not save! (Debate)

Cover 9 10 Debate

This activity gives you an opportunity to debate the topic: Boarders learn how to spend when boarding, not how to save.

There is a view that says boarders get an allowance and then spend that allowance. Boarders are never encouraged to save, so they do not think about saving. This creates a future problem for boarders, because they have only learnt how to spend, not save!

Facilitator notes are available.
