On Monday, Year 11 and 12 Students were fortunate enough to have Soren Jensen from CommBank visit the College to give a talk on financial matters. Giving young people a good foundation and teaching them about money matters is critical for their personal development and by showing them the basics such as how to budget, spend and save will establish good money habits for life.
It was a great opportunity for students to get involved in a discussion about saving for wish list items such as cars, phones, houses and to go travelling. They also really thought about how much they spend on takeaway and were seriously considering ways to better use their money and develop a savings plan.
By appreciating how much everyday life can cost and how beneficial it can be to save and plan to reach personal goals, Mrs. Carroll said it’s a great way for the College to support our young people to develop the knowledge, skills, attitudes and behaviours needed to meet the challenges of the twenty-first century.
