Planning ahead

Experts show Delview Secondary students how to balance their budgets.

Grade 12 students at Delview Secondary School recently spent a day learning how to balance a budget, work out financial plans, examine credit cards and debts and set goals for their financial futures.

The students were led by financial consultants Tom Markham and David Petrie, who were chosen among applicants in a contest held by the Financial Planning Standards Council.

“If we get people to think of (financial planning) sooner, they don’t get into the troubles of excessive debt later in life,” said Petrie.
