Supporting young people to be in control of their financial lives.
Following the very successful 2019 APPA Conference where delegates saw the difference MoneySmart grants have made to the teaching of financial literacy in primary schools, principals are encouraged to apply for the second round of primary grants.
Teachers play a pivotal role in helping students learn good money habits. To help teachers do this, MoneySmart is working with APPA to fund financial literacy projects in schools.
Funding is worth up to $5000 for each project and we particularly encourage schools in rural, regional and remote areas to apply for a MoneySmart grant.
We are looking for new, creative project ideas that:
- teach kids how to budget and plan
- integrates financial literacy across the whole school
- boosts parents’ understanding of good money management
- includes the local community.
Applications are now open to primary school principals for the second round of primary grants. (Applications close 18 October 2019.)
