Mrs Nicole Watson from the Leda ESC has kindy volunteered to be our school banking co-ordinator. Nicole works with the Leda ESC and has been the banking co-ordinator for her children's school for the last 3 years. All bank books can be dropped into the School Banking Drop Box in the Leda PS Office on Friday mornings. The banking will be counted and processed on site and taken directly to the bank before close of business on Friday afternoon. All banking books will then be returned to students on Monday. For all banking enquiries please email Nicole Watson: Nicole.Watson2@education.wa.edu.au
The purpose is to encourage students to become aware of how to save. Students are encouraged to make regular deposits and it is more about the frequency rather than the size of the deposit.
Thank-you to our volunteers who run this important service for our school community.
For every deposit made at school, no matter how big or small, students will receive a cool Dollarmites token. Once students have individually collected 10 tokens they can then be redeemed for a range of great, exclusive reward items in recognition of their continued savings behaviour.
School Banking accounts can be opened at any Commonwealth Bank branch. You no longer need to complete application forms and return them to school. Just go into any branch and ask to open a Youthsaver account for School Banking. Remember to take in identification for you and your child (such as drivers license and birth certificate), you will receive a Dollarmites wallet and deposit book on the spot and be able to start banking on the next business day – it is that easy!
