State School is excited to offer the Commonwealth Bank School Banking program
to all students. School banking will commence on Wednesday the 6thof February.
The School Banking program
provides children with an opportunity to deposit money into their Commonwealth
Bank Youthsaver account at school each week. The program is about how often
your child makes deposits, not how much they deposit.
encourage regular savings behaviour the program offers an exciting Rewards
Program. Every deposit earns your child a silver Dollarmites token, and once
they’ve collected 10 tokens they can redeem them for a reward.
School Banking is also a great fundraiser
for our school. Our school receives $5 when a student makes their first ever
School Banking deposit and 5% on every deposit made through the school (to a
maximum of $10 per individual deposit).
Getting involved in School Banking is easy!
You can get involved in the School
Banking program by opening a Commonwealth Bank Youthsaver account at your local
branch. All you need to bring is your current identification as well as your
child’s birth certificate. If you are an existing Commonwealth Bank customer
and have NetBank, you can open an account online.
If your child has an existing
Commonwealth Bank Youthsaver account they can start banking straight away. They
just need to bring their deposit in every week on School Banking day using
their Dollarmites deposit wallet.
School Banking day is Wednesday. Each
week you need to hand in your bank book to the office.

School Banking, please ask for a 2019 School Banking program information pack
