Update as at 18 March 2020:
School Banking suspended at the moment. Deposits at school are currently not being accepted and this will be reviewed Term by Term.
How to deposit
School Banking is available every Friday between 9am and 9.30am in the Kidzone new games room.
Students simply need to hand their deposit wallet to their class teacher on Friday mornings to go into the banking bag and then the banking bag gets brought up to the New Games room, ready to be taken up to our local Bendigo branch.
How to sign up
The sign up process is easy. Simply complete the 2-page Bendigo New Account Form (updated Feb 2020) and drop in to see the friendly staff at our local Bendigo Bank (973 Logan Road, Holland Park – near Dee Dot Café). You will need to take the completed form and have your ID and child’s ID (birth certificate and Medicare card or passport). The ONLY part on the form that requires completion is the Applicant Details section. Your child is Applicant 1 (titled member) and you, their parent/guardian, are Applicant 2 (non-titled member). You do not need to fill in the ‘Customer Best Record’ Field, or ‘Foreign Applicants’ in this section. All other sections including the signatures will be completed if necessary with Bendigo so they can assist in doing it correctly.
When your child is signed up for school banking they will receive a deposit wallet which will have inside it – Student banking name and account slip, transaction record book, and a piggy map which you can keep at home to record the number of deposits made and track how close you are to winning a prize (we will keep another copy of this at school to keep track of the deposits also).
You will be notified when your child has completed 5 deposits and they will be able to choose from available prize rewards. They will receive prizes after every 5 deposits.
Saving certificates are also awarded after every 10 deposits.
Throughout the year there will also be random prize draws on parade where children will have an extra chance to win a bonus prize. Three lucky children have received huge Crayola gift packs on parade in early Term 3, 2018.
