APPA is proud to partner with ASIC’s Moneysmart for teachers program to build the financial capability of primary school students and teachers. Moneysmart for teachers 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. Previous projects have featured market days, gardens, product development, cafés and financial literacy classrooms. Projects will be showcased during the annual APPA National Conference.
Round 3 Grant opportunities are now open!
(3rd August 2020)
Bring learning to life through funding worth up to $5,000 for each project.
We are looking for new, creative project ideas that:
- teach kids how to budget and plan in the digital age
- integrate financial literacy across the whole school
- incorporate cross-sector collaboration
- boost parents’ understanding of good money management
- include the local community.
