What’s School Banking?
School Banking is a fun, interactive and engaging way for young Australians to learn about money and develop good savings habits.
Run through participating primary schools nationally, children who deposit money into their Youthsaver account through School Banking earn Dollarmites tokens which they can redeem for exciting rewards.
It’s also a great fundraising activity, with participating schools receiving 5% of every individual deposit made at school (up to $10), along with other benefits.
When children join the program they receive a Dollarmites deposit wallet and a Platybank money box, along with a range of fun, engaging materials to help them learn and encourage them to save.
