Financial Literacy

Learning about the IRD

On Friday we had a visitor from the ASB Bank come and talk with us about how to be smart with our money.
We learnt about why different jobs pay different wages and how much it costs to live. We found out about paying taxes and what happens to the money.
Then we were given a budget and, in our groups, had to plan a trip to Hawaii. We had to decide if we wanted to pay with cash or credit card and if we wanted insurance or not. 
It was interesting to hear what people decided to do.
It was fun and a great way for us to learn about money and how to budget.

Well done to the other Kea students who also put themselves forward for election.
