The Commonwealth Bank school banking program runs for all students (and siblings) at Clyde Primary School. School banking occurs on a Tuesday morning. Students need to place their bank book with their deposit into the class bank book with the deposit slip and stub filled out. If you want siblings that aren’t students to bank, please put their bank book with an elastic band at the back of the students books. Students will receive their bank book back that afternoon.
Students will receive a token each week that they deposit and after 10 deposits they will receive a certificate and the opportunity to choose a prize. * Please note, tokens go back to zero at the start of the year and the computer program advises us when students are due for an award!
The easiest way to get your child started is to head to the commonwealth bank and join them up for an account (you will need to take your child’s birth certificate and proof of ID.) A representative from Commonwealth Bank will be visiting Clyde Primary School on Thursday 17th March from 2:30pm where you will be able to open up new accounts at that time also. For existing Commonwealth Bank customers you can open the account online here https://www.commbank.com.au/personal/kids/school-banking/dollarmites.html
The school Banking program not only teaches children to save money, it is also a fundraiser for the school with the CBA donating a percentage of deposits plus $5 per activated account via the program, back to the school.
We are also looking for a few parents to help out with the school banking program at Clyde. School Banking Co-ordinators are the volunteers who process the students banking (involving counting cash deposits, inputting deposits into computer system, organizing certificates and rewards etc).
It usually takes approx an hour on a Tuesday morning from 9am. If anyone is available to help out (does not need to be every week, it can be as and when) please leave your details for Lisa Keppel at the school office.
