We are proud to announce that Wellington Primary School will be organising the Annual National Primary Game Creation Competition (NPGCC). This competition aims to provide a platform for primary school pupils to showcase their talents and creativity by developing video games and learn through play. The finals of the NPGCC will be held on 6 September 2016.
The slogan for the NPGCC 2016 is ‘Prudent Savers, Values Creator’.
Participants will be tasked with creating interesting and innovative digital games which focus on the skills and knowledge that allow an individual to make informed and effective decisions with their financial resources and values in mind. The event is open to pupils from primary 4, 5 and 6. More details on the competition can be found in the attached letter of invitation. You may wish to note that schools which have won the overall champion three times in a row will not be participating in the competition for the next two years.Our briefing session for teachers is held on 22 March 2016. We have invited guests to give tips on how to create good game that focuses on financial literacy. The details of the briefing are as follows:
