School Banking

When it comes to a child’s education, knowing how to manage money is an essential skill. Our school banking program is organized through the Commonwealth Bank and is supported weekly by volunteers. Banking Day is every Thursday.

To participate in the program:

  • Parents open a Youthsaver account for their children (you can pick up the forms from the office
  • Kids can then bank every Thursday at school.
  • They receive a Dollarmites token every time they make a deposit to their savings account at school, regardless of the amount
  • Once they have 10 tokens, they can redeem them for a variety of reward items, including a handball, scented pencils, swimming bag and sea streamers
  • The more tokens they save, the more items they can redeem throughout the year
  • Our school benefit by receiving a commission on every deposit made at the school and $5 for every Activated Account via the program.

To register your child for School Banking with the Commonwealth Bank, please pick up a registration pack from the School Office.

Testimonials

It is refreshing that fathers are just as welcome as mothers in school life. From Kindergarten where I have the opportunity to participate in my youngest boy’s class to school camp that I was fortunate to attend, I have always been encouraged and warmly welcomed. I have also thoroughly enjoyed participating in class room help for all my boys.

The move into the grade 5/6 area which is separate from the rest of the school gives the kids a real sense of being the ‘big kids’ and is a start to their transition to secondary school and being more responsible.

The school garden is such a fantastic feature of our school. Garden Club students have the opportunity to learn about all aspects of gardening from the role of healthy soil to how to use silverbeet to make delicious pizzas. Science, nutrition and sustainability are explored in a truly hands on environment.
