Financial Literacy for Schools

Attention: open in a new window. Print

Teaching children how to manage money is a vital part of a child’s education. If kids develop good financial skills from an early age they'll be ready for the financial challenges of adulthood.

Showing children the basics such as how to budget, spend and save will establish good money habits for life.

Our Financial Literacy talks accommodate children of all ages, from Preps understanding the basics of money and saving, through to secondary students learning about goal-setting and applying for loans.

To help promote financial literacy, South West Credit provides this service to schools at no charge.
