Saver Plus is a matched savings program which provides financial education to help families and individuals develop long term savings habits and assist them to improve their financial skills.
“It has a spin-off effect with self-esteem; students knowing they can participate in all the events, where before this they might only have been able to participate in some,” Andrew, Principal of Southport State School says.
Since completing the program, Jamie feels confident in her ability to save towards her goals.
“We can set goals for things that we thought we couldn't do or couldn't have. We can have those things and without the program I probably wouldn't have those things,” Jamie says.
