Every lunchtime, with great ceremony, the "bank manager" and cashier will pick up the cash box full of precious Kirts from the school secretary and take it to the bank in the middle of the school.
Items range in price from 3 Kirts, for items such as sparkly erasers, neon-coloured felt-tips or toy cars, through to 12 Kirts for a teddy bear and even 100 Kirts for a blow-up paddling pool.
The bank offers an interest rate of 10% and pupils soon understand that if they work hard, keep from spending their Kirts and even find extra opportunities to earn "money" they can eventu-eventually afford a much-prized 100 Kirt item.
