We offer a ‘Coastline Cubs School Visit Program’ which helps educate young students on how to best manage their money and guide them to make sensible and worthwhile financial decisions in the future.
Finance is non-intuitive and to work towards financial literacy, we believe introducing students to the world of finance will prove to be a beneficial endeavour. This program provides students with a hands-on practical learning experience on the reality of banking and managing finances. We offer ‘in-store’ visits and have added ‘in school’ visits this year as we understand it is not always easy bringing a class into the branch (as exciting as it is).
During the ‘in store’ visits, students experience transactional based activities such as using a coin counting machine to exchange 5 x$1 coins into a $5 note, which they keep, this initiative is supported by the Community Foundation. Students are then engaged in a guided tour where they are shown the big safe, spin money through the note counter and partake in fun money-based learning activities assisted by our staff.
Our ‘in school’ visit program has been amended to be suitable for a classroom- still involving REAL money and other engaging learning activities. Each student is presented with a goodie bag and certificate at the conclusion of the excursion.
The Coastline Cubs School Visit Program correlates with outcomes in the NSW Education Standards Authority Mathematics syllabus and the Early Years Learning Framework.
