How does it work?

1. School Banking is completely managed by the staff and volunteers* from the Seddon Community Bank Branch

2. Volunteers set up a “counter” at an accessible location within school grounds one morning a week, 20 minutes prior to school starting

3. Students deposit their banking at the counter where it is counted and signed off by the student

4. The volunteers deliver the banking to the branch for processing

5. On the same day, the volunteers return the envelopes to the school and distribute to class pigeon holes for the teacher to return to students

Benefits

1. The school has a “hands off” involvement in the process of school banking- we just need an easily accessible location, a table and two chairs!

2. Students get to physically experience depositing, counting and signing off on their banking

3. Creates an opportunity for the students and the school to participate in the wider community

4. Creates a relationship between the school, the students and a funding source that can offer wider support as detailed above

5. The school and students have an opportunity to see their banking make a difference to their immediate community with profits going back into their sporting clubs, school and community groups

Interested in introducing the Seddon Community Bank School Banking Program at your school, we’d love to help!
