It’s so wonderful to get the support of Jess Pugh MP for Mount Ommaney. We really hope there will be more influential politicians like Jess supporting this great cause and putting our resource FLY forward as a ready-to-go solution for schools to help improve the growing financial literacy issue ...🙏🏻
All the hard work in putting it together has been done. Now we just need the support of schools to use it and for students to embrace this knowledge for their future success.
Any questions about FLY please don’t hesitate to reach out or visit our website: www.financiallyliterateyouth.com.au
"Aussie kids’ financial knowledge is on the decline. The proposed national curriculum has downgraded it even further..
We need to ensure the Australian Curriculum keeps the explicit language to embed financial literacy concepts into maths lessons. This way, kids will grow up with ...the financial knowledge they need to make important decisions and participate meaningfully in society and the economy."

"They learn calculus inside and out, but when do our kids really learn about money? This practical and engaging handbook for managing your personal finances is a non-negotiable for teens eager to discover more about money – from tax to super, goal setting to buying insurance, it has it ...all."

High School Principals & SCHOOL COMMUNITIES! We've been busy writing to Education Ministers! And guess what!?
Both Federal and State Ministers for Education wrote back to us this week 🙌
The common feedback was:
• Financial capability of children and young ...people is important;
• YOU (School Principals, in consultation with the school community) are the ultimate DECISION MAKERS for your school regarding the application of the curriculum and the learning resources used at your school;
• Existing Mathematics, Humanities and Social Sciences as well as Economics and Business subjects provide the platform for financial literacy education;
• We have been encouraged to reach out to you and introduce FLY, as a potential new financial literacy learning resource for your school.
FLY is a credible and comprehensive financial literacy tool written especially for high schoolers. It is suitable to be used as a textbook and/or a school leavers gift.
Published by the world’s largest publisher Penguin Random House and written by three parents who are experts in Finance, Law and Journalism, FLY is both credible and well referenced to help make teaching financial literacy a breeze. Its handbook format also makes it the perfect book for students to keep handy and refer back to, for many years to come.
Your help and support in utilising FLY as a learning resource at your high school will see our mission fulfilled; to help our youth make informed financial decisions and spread their wings as they embrace life after school.
We can’t wait to work with you!
