School Banking

School Banking is run by a small team of volunteer parents in collaboration with the Commonwealth Bank.

The belief of the Commonwealth Bank is that all young Australians should learn about the importance of saving and smart money management. If saving is part of a child’s education, knowing how to manage money is as essential as English, Maths, Science or the Arts. 

School Banking is a fun, engaging way for our students to learn lifelong money-management skills.

  • Schools receive a commission on every deposit
  • Schools receive a commission for every Activated Account via the program
  • Students receive a Dollarmites token every time they make a deposit to their savings account at school, regardless of the amount
  • Once the student has 10 tokens, they can redeem them for a variety of reward items, including a handball, scented pencils, swimming bag and sea streamers, for example.  The rewards vary and will be communicated at the start of each school year
  • The more tokens they save, the more items they can redeem throughout the year
  • These fun and enjoyable rewards are a great way to keep your kids motivated and to demonstrate the value of saving.
  • Participation in the School Banking Rewards Program is not mandatory. If you’re keen for your child to be involved in the Rewards Program, please visit the school banking team.

School banking will commence Thursday 14 February and run every Thursday morning between 8.20am and 8.45am in the canteen. We would like to welcome and thank Meenakshi Arya and Amy Chang for volunteering as new school banking co-ordinators.
