Every Thursday, students line up near the Canteen during morning tea, ready to be served by Mrs Sonia Apanian. However, they are not there to purchase from the Canteen, but have lined up at the teller’s line for School Banking, which is open for business.
It is pleasing to see children being responsible with their money and making wise decisions on saving or investment. No matter how small their deposits are, the regular visit to the ‘bank’ teaches them the skills and gives them the opportunity to set their own goals and investment targets.
The ‘Dollarmites’ program is part of Commonwealth Bank’s Youthsaver Account, specially tailored to meet the needs of children and their parents.
