Tintern Junior School – Commonwealth Bank School Banking Program

Established in 1931, School Banking has been teaching money-management skills to generations of primary school children.

Children who participate are rewarded with Dollarmites tokens that they can redeem for exciting rewards when they deposit regularly into their savings account. The program is supported by a range of fun and engaging materials to help them learn about money – and encourage them to save.

Not only does it teach crucial money skills, it’s also a great way for schools to engage with parents and the broader school community.

Exciting promotions and adventures with the Dollarmites

To keep students motivated and encourage participation, every year we introduce a new savings adventure. In 2018, students will join the Dollarmites, stationed at their superhero headquarters, on a Super Savers adventure. 

School Banking competitions are also run at participating schools nationally, offering students the chance to win great prizes just by saving regularly.


School banking day is each WEDNESDAY during term time.
