The most incredible thing happened!

An amazing teacher at a NSW high school bulk ordered a copy of FLY for each of their graduating students!

This has been a dream come true and the exact intent and vision we had for FLY.

With the principal of each high school ...throughout Australia responsible for the interpretation of the curriculum and decision on what resources the school will use, it is ultimately in the hands of each school to take advantage of this comprehensive and life changing resource for their students.

... and hopefully more will follow suit soon! 🙏🤞🤞🤞

If you want this great tool for your high school students too then please do share the word. It's impossible for us to reach them all (especially during covid times) but your introduction to FLY might be just what it takes to see this valuable resource in the hands of your high school students!

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.
