Learning about Finances is an important life skill. Understanding how we need to save for the things we would like develops goals, no matter how young we are. Year 6 learnt about how they could save from Maritza, who was a representative of the Commonwealth Bank, She showed everyone how to set goals and think about what jobs they could do to earn money.
How can we save money?
See it. See what you want and how much it is.
Earn it. Earn the money by doing jobs.
Save it. Save the money don't spend it and buy what you want.
What did we do?
A nice lady named Maritza from Commonwealth Bank came and talked to us about how we can save money as kids. We got into small groups of 3 and thought of our own little business. Some examples are...
Carter- A photographer and sell his photos at the markets.
Brianna- Lemonade stand on her street.
Amy- Teaching little kids how to do art.
Victoria- Cake store.
Stuart- Flips of money.
Josh.s- Book store.
Luke- Play games and get some prizes.
Jake- Window cleaning
Sienna and Sian- Getting groceries for the elderly
