Get Wise - Financial Literacy

This week we had Jacqui from the Get Wise Programme run by the ASB,  come and take a lesson on Financial Literacy.

It was lots of fun, we learnt about:

  • The minimum wage, taxes and what they are spent on, having an IRD number, jobs - and  how your qualifications and training can affect how much you earn.
  • Saving for things and the difference between needs and wants.

Then the class was split into two teams and played a game about involving an imaginary holiday, cash vs credit cards, currency conversion, having travel insurance, and reading the small print.

Thanks Jacqui for making leaning about money so enjoyable...
