This week the Middle School students participated in Start Smart Banking workshops run by the Commonwealth Bank. The award winning Start Smart program changes the way young people learn about finance. By making money management interactive, engaging and fun, the students gain the confidence and competence to make smart decisions about money.
Created in close consultation with leading education experts and delivered by a team of facilitators across Australia the six workshops each focus on a different topic in depth; choices, earning, saving, spending, investing and enterprise. Each workshop is an interactive learning experience empowering students to make confident financial choices.
The year 7 and 8 students were involved in the Smart Choices workshop, Year 9 Smart Earning and Year 10 Smart Spending.
