Visits of elementary school pupils at the BCL for the "Woch vun de Suen"
In the context of the European Money Week ( "Woch vun de Suen") organised from 14 to 18 March 2016, the Banque centrale du Luxembourg (BCL) independently provides a programme allowing groups of school children from grade 4.1 (primary education) to get acquainted with money in general and with the security features of banknotes and coins in particular. Given the large number of requests, the BCL has decided to extend the visits until 24 March 2016 to welcome nearly 600 pupils.
During the two-and-a-half-hours educational sessions that will be organized over these two weeks, pupils will, in a first part, benefit from playful and interactive presentations including movies and games. The theoretical part will be followed by a more practical session, during which the school children will put into practice their knowledge of euro banknotes’ security features in a workshop.
Pupils will also be able to test their knowledge and entertain themselves with a brochure specifically prepared for this occasion by the BCL. This new publication, entitled "Die Jäger des verlorenen Euro-Schatzes", will usher them through a thrilling adventure featuring the legend of Melusine. By using the information received during the visit, they will be able to solve riddles hiding the location of a mysterious treasure.
A first group of fifty elementary school children from Wiltz and Garnich was welcomed on Monday, 14 March.
