About Woodville Primary School
Woodville Primary School is located in the western suburbs of Adelaide with a diverse student population of more than 300.
Woodville Primary School will convert a spare classroom into an interactive play supermarket, as a venue for practical financial literacy learning.
Topics (depending on age group) include shopping within a budget, menu planning, calculating change, stock inventory and profit margins.
Older students will get shares in the supermarket and manage their shares in a ‘fluctuating market’.
Parents will be involved in running the supermarket. Students’ learning will be evaluated, and the school hopes the activity will boost their NAPLAN results.
The learnings from this project will be shared with other schools.
