FINANCIAL LITERACY IN PRIMARY SCHOOLS
PRIMARY SCHOOL STUDENTS: BANQER
Banqer is an online financial education tool that helps teachers deliver financial literacy in an engaging and relevant way to primary school students. The software transforms the classroom into a mini-economy where students transact with one another from their own online bank accounts. From there, they experience budgeting, taxes, super, mortgages and much more.
As an FPA member you are able to support your local primary school to use Banqer and assist them on their financial education journey. This is all achieved at no cost to the school.
FINANCIAL LITERACY IN HIGH SCHOOLS
High school students: financial life skills presentation
Helping young Australians understand the basic concepts of personal finance is an invaluable life skill. Yet many teenagers have limited access to this type of financial capability education. The FPA has developed a presentation to enable FPA members to deliver these skills in a fun and engaging manner at a local school. The ‘Students vs Financial Responsibility’ trivia presentation can be accessed through the member centre.
