Whānau Financial Literacy

We will be updating the platform regularly with new activities, games and learning tools. We aim to have tamariki engaged frequently with Ngā Kaitiaki Moni to encourage conversation with whānau at home on topics like whānau finance, saving and long-term goal setting. Tamariki will develop a deeper understanding of money and future aspirations in a fun and interactive way.
