The School Banking program provides children with an opportunity to make deposits into their personal Commonwealth Bank Youthsaver account at school each week. The program is about how often your child makes deposits, not how much they deposit.


To encourage regular savings behaviour the program offers an exciting Rewards Program. Every deposit earns your child a Dollarmites token, and once they’ve collected 10 tokens they can redeem them for a reward.

The rewards items available during 2015 are:
  • ET DVD, released Term 1

  • Planet Handball, released Term 1

  • Invisible Ink Martian Pen, released Term 2

  • Intergalactic Rocket, released Term 2

  • Glow-in-the-Dark Solar System, released Term 3

  • Cosmic Light Beam Torch, released Term 3

  • Outer Space Savers Money Box, released Term 4

  • Lunar Light Band, released Term 4

For every deposit made at school, no matter how big or small, students (even 20c will do!) will receive a cool Dollarmites token.  Once students have reached 10 tokens they will be notified and can redeem them for these exclusive School Banking reward items in recognition of their continued savings behaviour.  There are 2 new items to come in Term 2 as well!

Get involved in the School Banking program.
Remember our school earns 5% commission on every deposit made
(to a maximum of $10 per individual deposit).

If your children are not currently involved in the School Banking program and you would like to know more, please ask a school banking assistant for a 2015 School Banking program Information Pack from the School office.  


If you are interested in opening a Commonwealth Bank Youthsaver account for your child  the fastest and easiest way to set up an account is to visit your local Commonwealth Bank.  You will need to take your current driver’s licence or another form of photographic identification. Remember to take in your child’s birth certificate or passport.  Once you have your account number you can see the school banking assistants and we will give your child a passport to get saving!


Thank you for supporting the School Banking program and don’t forget that Wednesday morning before school is School Banking day!

Calling for volunteers – we need your help!

If any parents would like to help with School Banking

on Wednesday mornings between 8am - 8.30

your assistance would be greatly appreciated.


Our students really enjoy participating in the Commonwealth Bank School Banking program and to keep this program running we need your help.


The program requires a couple more volunteer School Banking Assistants to help share the load.  We hope to establish a roster system in 2015.


This only takes a small amount of your time one day a week and your help with the program will greatly benefit students as they develop vital saving skills and also help our school with fundraising.
