Interest from schools around the country in talking about financial literacy – in both English and te reo

Thursday 15 Jul 21 11:57am
The Financial Services Council [FSC] has had a fantastic response to the launch of its new competition for New Zealand school students.

The ‘Why Does Money Matter?’ competition, launched in June, asks students around the country to explain why money matters to them in a three-minute video. FSC’s CEO Richard Klipin says there has already been a fantastic response from Kiwi schools, and there are still six weeks left to register and enter.

“We’re delighted that already 50 schools and kura around the country from Kaitaia to Invercargill have registered, and we encourage all Kiwi schools, classrooms and students to tell us why money matters to them.

“It’s exciting to see the level of interest from schools in growing the financial literacy of students, particularly from smaller schools in rural areas and those wanting to submit entries in te reo Māori.

“We’re proud to confirm that entries can be submitted in both English and te reo Māori, and we’re able to connect schools with platforms that provide free financial resources in both languages.
