CommBank School Banking

The health, safety and wellbeing of our communities and our people remains our highest priority. Due to the ongoing uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, the School Banking program will remain on hold. We will continue to monitor the situation and keep you informed with any updates including how we will be managing Dollarmite tokens for students. 

 

In the meantime, here are some handy online resources for parents who wish to maintain momentum with their child’s financial education: 

  • Start Smart: these resources have been created to improve children’s money management skills, and  aligned to the Australian Curriculum and the National Consumer Financial Literacy Framework.
  • The Beanstalk: offers videos and fun activities for children to learn about money.

Early Arrival at School

Students are not to arrive at school before 8:20am as the gates do not open until 8:30am and staff are not on duty to supervise until this time.

A number of students have been at school unsupervised before 8:00am. This is a potential safety issue. OSHC is available before school, please contact Jacky on 0437198833 to arrange care for your child/children.
