Montessori Australia and Raiz have partnered to help improve financial literacy in primary and secondary schools in Australia
Financial Literacy: The partnership will see Montessori Australia and Raiz collaborate on a range of initiatives, including the development of resources and materials that can be used in Montessori and other public and private educational settings to teach children about money management, budgeting, saving, entrepreneurship and investing for the 21st century. The partnership will also involve the creation of new workshops and programs that will be delivered by Montessori Australia educators and supported by Raiz financial experts.
According to Montessori Australia CEO, Hani Ghali, “We are thrilled to partner with Raiz to help young Australians build the knowledge and skills they need to make informed financial decisions throughout their lives. Montessori education is all about empowering children to become independent, self-directed learners, and this partnership is a natural extension of that philosophy.”
Brendan Malone, CEO of Raiz, added, “We believe that financial literacy is a critical life skill that every young person should have the opportunity to learn. Montessori is a world-renowned and time-tested approach to education that emphasises hands-on experiential learning that is meaningful for learners. By partnering with Montessori Australia, we can help children develop a strong foundation in financial literacy and equip them with the tools they need to achieve their financial goals.”
Montessori Australia and Raiz are committed to providing accessible, engaging, and relevant financial education to children across Australia. The partnership will leverage the strengths of both organizations to create meaningful impact and drive positive change in the lives of young Australians.
