Financial literacy in schools
For four years we've been supporting Australian kids on their financial journey, partnering with Banqer to bring their online financial literacy program to more than 250 classrooms across 150 Australian primary schools.
Netwealth in partnership with Banqer, is bringing a financial literacy program to 15,000 Australian kids nationally.
Banqer is a virtual classroom economy created where kids can learn to earn, save, spend and invest their money in a safe and engaging way.
Banqer has a number of learning modules, including bank accounts, income, interest on savings, superannuation, taxation, real estate and insurance.
Subscription is free for 15,000 Australian kids through Netwealth’s partnership with Banqer.
Financial literacy at home
Together, we're also supporting kids to learn the money lessons that matter virtually, with a free two-week program of fun activities. Largely self-directed, Banqer's program of fun and engaging activities is aimed at primary school children between the ages of 9 and 12.
With 10 downloadable activities, kids will learn everything from budgeting to the importance of insurance, debt and financial risk, savings and managing uncertainty.

Melbourne's Port Fairy Consolidated School
"Most of my students enjoy the aspect of spending money, but they also love to save! They are very engaged and often talk to each other about the financial decisions they’re making. Top savers and those with high net wealth are often asked to explain how they raised their money."Learn about Bob Beekhof's classroom
Perth's Trinity College
“Good money habits should begin at an early age so that students can understand the importance of budgeting and planning. Banqer has gifted the children in my class this opportunity; when they start earning their first income, they will be able to make a knowledgeable choice about how to best use their money.”Learn about Maddison Gorman's classroom
