School trips and pocket money/spending money

(3 Posts)

A small wallet ( named) which fits into a zipped hoody or jacket pocket or inside his backpack. Maybe some separate coins in a plastic Coin bag popped into his lunch box in case the wallet does get dropped/left somewhere.

How old is he? At my DCs school when in primary, certainly in early years had to hand in named wallet/purse/envelope/ which was held by group leader and given out when they got to the souvenir shop/cafe or whatever and then given back in when they were done.

Pocket with a zip?

I suppose it depends on how old he is. And how much money.

Hello everyone

My DS is going on his first ever school day trip in April.

All the children are allowed to take a little spending money. This money is to be their responsibility entirely.

I think this is great but I worry about the money being lost - what are the options for him keeping it safe?
