Everton Park SS is a proud member of the Commonwealth Bank School Banking Scheme and is excited to offer the program to all students. The School Banking program provides children with an opportunity to deposit money into their Commonwealth Bank Youthsaver account each Thursday throughout term time. Students will receive a yellow Dollarmites deposit wallet and deposit book to bring their money to school.
To encourage regular savings behaviour the program offers an exciting Rewards Program. The program is about how often your child makes deposits, not how much they deposit. Every deposit they make earns them a silver Dollarmites token and once they’ve collected 10 tokens they can redeem them for one of the reward items. Rewards are different each school year/term, two reward items are released per term.
Several account opening days are held throughout the year, these will be advertised in the school newsletter. Alternatively, you can open an account at your local branch. All you need to take in is your current driver’s licence or another form of photographic identification, as well as your child’s birth certificate. If you are an existing Commonwealth Bank customer and have NetBank, you can open an account online.
If you would like to know more about School Banking, please ask for a 2017 School Banking program information pack from the school office.
The school banking program is also supported by a Commbank Youth App, it provides a hands-on experience, teaching your child to earn, save and spend their money responsibly. For other fun savings tools and activities visit the Commbank website HERE
