On Thursday 26th February Room 2 visited the Hunters Corner ASB with their teachers Mrs O’Grady and Mrs Bucheler. They enjoyed their walk in the sun and were excited to reach the bank.
While there the class was split into two groups and shown around the premises.
It was fun to see the cash machines, the money counting machines and meet the staff who explained lots of financial literacy knowledge!
Everyone in Room 2 received a balloon in the ASB colours to take home with them. They also got a brochure explaining how they could join the ASB and pay into their account each week, at school.
Yes, we have a special secure banking box which is in the school office, there we can deposit our pocket money. We can even collect special envelopes from the school office to put our money safely in first.
We would love for our family to ask us about our visit and also talk to us about ideas like, ‘Save some spend some!’ and other things you know about money.
