Financial Literacy

Monday Afternoon

Period 6

St Andrew's College

Room: TBA


Financial Literacy is critical knowledge for young people. Richard Branson, one of the world's most successful people says this..." Well, I think that there's a very thin line between success and failure. And I think if you start a business without financial backing [and financial literacy] you're likely to go the wrong side of that dividing line".

"The ability to make financial decisions and manage personal and business finances permeates all aspects of an individual’s life. From value shopping, buying a house, involvement in business organisations and evaluating the impact of financial decisions forms an essential life-time competency for every person in today’s society. Life requires an understanding of how finance and financial arrangements impact on members of a community from savings through to investments decisions" (Auckland University, 2016).
