Year 6 is an important year as students prepare to transition to secondary school, so our program focuses on consolidating critical numeracy and literacy skills. Plus, we introduce real life skills they can use as they gain greater independence.

Around age 11 kids start to realise that their decisions can have long-term effects. They are becoming more mature in their ability to problem solve, plan and organise. This makes it a fantastic time to plant the seeds for real life money skills.

Students have built up a good understanding of fractions, percentages and integers. Now it’s time to apply it to real life and managing money.
