Welcome to Beyond Money, Beyond Bank’s financial literacy program for students in years 5, 6 and 7. Why not begin by viewing the introductory video in the side menu on this page.
The aim of the Beyond Money program is to teach students important life skills such as goal setting, working for an income, saving and budgeting. Over 4-5 weeks they will undertake jobs at home, at school or in the community to earn a fictional income which can be used to buy rewards at the end of the program (the rewards will be negotiated with the teacher at the beginning of the program).
The program is directly linked to the Mathematics and Humanities and Social Sciences / Economics and Business learning areas and is provided free to schools.
The program covers seven topics:
- Setting goals
- Income generation
- Rewards and reflection
Your child might already be participating in the program, but if not, you may wish to let his/her teacher know about the program and this website.
