Chorley School Girls Launch Educational Debt Book

A groundbreaking initiative launched by Debt Advice Foundation and Southlands High School, has resulted in two Southlands pupils, Ruth Gratton age 15 and Nicola Harescough age 16 becoming published authors.

The Debt Advice Foundation approached Brian Souter, Deputy Head Teacher of Southlands School, to ask if an educational tool could be developed by pupils to assist in teaching primary age children about sensible money management and a responsible approach to debt.
