Message from our 2020 sponsor

Commonwealth Bank is proud to be sponsoring the ‘P&C of the Year’ Awards for the fifth consecutive year.  We’re looking forward to celebrating the amazing work Parents & Citizens’ groups in Queensland have achieved, and communities have achieved, and we wish all nominees the best of luck.

Commonwealth Bank has had a long, proud tradition of helping many young Australians learn about the importance of saving and smart money management. Our School Banking Program has been running since 1931 and gives primary school students an easy, interactive way to learn good money management skills. Through the program, children can bank at school, getting a hands-on banking experience in an interactive environment. The program also offers fundraising support to participating Schools.

Similarly, our award-winning financial education program Start Smart has developed new resources to assist parents and carers in improving their children’s money management skills. These free, short videos and worksheets can be accessed from home and are designed to give students the confidence and skills to make smart decisions about money. For more information visit
