Unfortunately, due to some government decisions, we are unable to continue providing our School Banking program in our school as the Commonwealth bank we has made the difficult decision to close our School Banking program nationally.
As a result, the CommBank School Banking program will not be returning to schools in 2022.
The School Banking program was established in 1931 at a time when having a bank account was not commonplace, and since then we have helped more than 15 million Australians take their first financial steps.
This would not have been possible without the wonderful support we have had from the schools we partnered with over the journey, and for this we are deeply grateful.
Even though this is a sad time, School Banking has taught so many young Australians, past and present, the value of money and we believe this should be celebrated. We have created a place for you to share your stories, fondest memories and lessons learnt through the program. Share your story at commbank.com.au/sbstories
While the in-school program will close, the Commonwealth Bank are committed to supporting financial wellbeing, and will always provide financial education to young Australians. We have launched a new CommBank Youth Hub, which brings together all our youth financial education resources for parents and teachers. This includes a range of free resources including lesson plans, videos and worksheets from our curriculum-aligned financial education program, Start Smart.
Mrs Buzzolic will continue collecting School Banking until the 6th December 2021. Please contact her at the school if you require further information.
