ASIC MoneySmart: Principals Project

MoneySmart Principals Project

APPA is partnering with ASIC’s MoneySmart Teaching program to build the financial capability of primary school students and teachers. The program is the only national financial literacy program for schools endorsed by state and territory education departments.

Together we are running a grants program to boost teachers and their students’ financial literacy.

MoneySmart Grants for Principals

Congratulations to the nine MoneySmart grant recipients.

There are some great projects featuring market days, gardens, product development, a café, a financial literacy classroom and a multimedia project.

The first round of grant applications has closed but will reopen in the second half of 2019. This year’s projects will be showcased during the APPA National Conference in Adelaide in September.

We look forward to watching this year’s projects develop over the year.
