Over a hundred Preschool to High school students opened their first saving account with BPI Family Savings Bank, Security Bank and more. “Having their own savings account makes children become more aware of their own pocket money/allowance and can encourage them to develop good savings habits. Saving from their allowance is an opportunity for your children to learn the value of money and discipline,” said Mr. Jan Lester Dimayuga, Cluster Manager of BPI Family Savings Bank.

As a progressive international school in the Philippines, Southville ensures that its students, starting from Nursery up to College, are equipped with money management skills through class programs like Financial Literacy, Business, Math of Investment and Personal Finance.
