This week we had a visit from Rachael from Commonwealth Bank. She ran an information session on savings and goals for the students which links into our financial maths unit we will be doing later this term. Rachael discussed ways that students could earn money which does not rely on their parents. She introduced 3 steps students should use in order for them to set a mid-term goal and achieve it:
Step 1: See it
Step 2: Earn it – this can through 4 ways
b) Neighbourhood Jobs
c) Sell and Trade
Step 3: Save it
We then worked individually or in pairs and came up with a business we could create that we could run to get money. There were some very interesting concepts and the students were very excited and motivated to get earning! Check out some photos below!
