Year 5 Earn & Learn 2017
Yr 5 Earn and Learn
Term 3 has been busy and full of excitement. As we move into the final weeks, our students (budding entrepreneurs) are frantically working overtime to replenish their businesses for ‘Earn and Learn’.
Unique, hand-made products adorn the tables in each Year 5 room, in preparation for another day of trading.
‘Earn and Learn’ is a financial awareness program where students initially earn a salary for classroom work or PoR’s (positions of responsibility) they complete. They pay tax, make weekly rent and electricity payments for their seat and business, take out insurance policies against absence, contribute to superannuation and make resource purchases.
They organise their finances, completing individual and business pay advices after each day of trade.
Students work together in pairs to manage, advertise and operate their businesses.
It has proven to be a popular program amongst the whole school community with many of our junior school classes booking into shopping sessions.
