First Choice Credit Union are looking to support our local pre-schools and primary schools to help educate our children about managing their money. The First Choice Junior Saver aims to develop a child’s financial literacy, teach them about managing their money and how to save, helping them to develop good financial habits that can last a lifetime.
The account is a high interest savings account with online access. Interest is calculated daily and credited monthly on the last day of the month. There are no fees or charges on this account. The children only have viewing access to their accounts online and withdrawals are limited to over the counter. A First Choice representative will visit the schools in order to collect any deposits that the school children have.
Every child that opens an account will receive a little gift bag with a Junior Saver money box, a deposit book and a ruler to encourage them to save. First Choice are also offering our marquee for use by the schools when they need it, example for sports carnivals etc. We will also be rewarding the student that saves the most frequently over twelve months from each school with a $20 deposit into their account and a certificate in recognition of their efforts. The school will also receive a book donated to the school library with the child’s name in it.
