Year 12 Pastoral Session - Financial Literacy

On Tuesday 30th May , the Year 12s took part in some sessions based around Financial Literacy, a topic that will prove very important in 2018 and beyond.

  • Students were introduced to consumer guarantees under the Australian Consumer Law.
  • Students took part in a short role play demonstrating how these guarantees affect them
  • A short quiz then highlighted some common consumer law issues faced by young people.
