The Australian Boarding Schools Association is proud to announce our partnership with The Wealth Academy. The need to develop the financial life skills of students in boarding schools is important. As boarders live away from home, and without the daily guidance of parents, there is potential for students to develop attitudes and behaviours with regard financial decision-making, that will not serve them well in the future. All boarders regardless of background, deserve the right to build their financial capability in a safe, structured and supported environment. The need for financial education is increasingly important as it can counter-balance the constant messaging boarders will read and see relating to gambling, spending, live for now - pay later advertising. This is an exciting partnership that will bring about positive change for members, their staff and most importantly boarders. We encourage our members to get involved.

Taxpayers Australia has been providing tax knowledge to Australians for over 95 years and we’re now proud to join forces with The Wealth Academy to build financial literacy amongst students across the country. Those entering the workforce are often the least equipped to understand even the basics of our tax and superannuation systems. Taxpayers Australia has that knowledge and we look forward to empowering a new generation of students to leave education with a broad understanding of how the tax and super systems work, and how tax and super can ultimately work for them. Through written materials and video content, we’ll provide schools which are part of the Wealth Academy program with all they need to help their students understand how to get a TFN, how their tax will be deducted and what it will be used for, how to join a super fund, what they will get from their super fund and when. All this and much more. It’s essential that financial literacy is a core component of every child’s education. This kind of vital life skill helps prepare all students for business and for the workforce and Taxpayers Australia will be working together with The Wealth Academy to help provide those skills.
