It all adds up for Bromley youngsters meeting finance expert Emmanuel

Financial expert and TV personality Emmanuel Asuquo paid a visit to a primary school as part of a national day aimed at getting children interested in maths.

St Mark’s Church of England Primary School, in Aylesbury Road, Bromley, was only too pleased to welcome Emmanuel – who comes from Bromley.

He wanted to give his support to the NSPCC’s Number Day which encourages youngsters to harness a love of maths, while raising vital funds for the charity.

Emmanuel started the visit with an interactive assembly which piqued pupils’ curiosity and was followed by two 30-minute workshops.

Number Day normally features a range of maths related activities and games, including Dress up for Digits with family donations for the event.

Headteacher at St Mark’s Church of England Primary School Chris Hollands, said: “I was very pleased to have the opportunity to support the NSPCC’s Number Day, which saw our pupils have their love of maths encouraged with a range of workshops and activities.

“I want to especially thank Emmanuel for coming down to our school to inspire our pupils and to the wider NSPCC team for their fantastic work and for making the day possible.”

Emmanuel said: “I’ve always been passionate about numbers, so to be involved in a day that celebrates maths is fantastic. It’s also a pleasure to be able to take part in a day that raises vital funds for the NSPCC.”

Charlotte Ali, NSPCC schools co-ordinator for South London, said: “It’s always great to see how the day is celebrated and we hope lots of schools and nurseries in Bromley and beyond continue sign up to our day of learning and play.

“Around 90 per cent of the NSPCC’s income comes from supporters, including schools, and the charity simply couldn’t run its vital services that help so many children and young people without such support. Every pound raised adds up.”
