School Banking program

What is School Banking?

School Banking is a fun and engaging way for young Australians to learn about money and develop good savings habits.  

Run through participating primary schools nationally, children who deposit money into their Youthsaver account through the program earn Dollarmites tokens which they can redeem for exciting rewards. 

Children who join will receive a Dollarmites deposit wallet, a money box and a range of fun, engaging materials to help them learn and encourage them to save.

Savings rewards

To help reward savings efforts, every time a student deposits into their Youthsaver account through School Banking, they’ll receive a Dollarmites token.

Once they’ve collected 10 tokens, they can redeem them for exciting reward items through the School Banking Rewards Program.
