Commonwealth Bank Youthsaver Bank Account - every Thursday 8:30am-8:50am in the undercover area:

Winthrop Primary School P&C offers the Commonwealth Bank School Banking program to all students. The School Banking program provides children with an opportunity to make deposits into their personal Commonwealth Bank Youthsaver account at school each week. The program is about how often your child makes deposits, not how much they deposit.

School Banking day is Thursday. Each week, bring along your Dollarmite Deposit Book and money to the undercover area.

Get involved in the School Banking program:

If you are interested in opening a Commonwealth Bank Youthsaver account for your child please bring along your current driver’s licence or another form of photographic identification. No identification is required for your child attending school, as the school will confirm their identity. Alternatively, you can open an account at any branch, by calling 13 22 21, or online if you are an existing Commonwealth Bank customer. You will receive a Dollarmites wallet and deposit book that your child will use to participate in the program.

To encourage regular savings behaviour the program offers an exciting Rewards Program. Every deposit earns your child a Dollarmites token, and once they’ve collected 10 tokens they can redeem them for a reward.

The school receives $5 when a student makes their first ever School Banking deposit and 5% on every deposit made through the school (to a maximum of $10 per individual deposit).

If your child has an existing Commonwealth Bank Youthsaver account they can start banking straight away. They just need to bring their deposit in every week using their Dollarmites deposit wallet. If your child has misplaced their Dollarmites deposit book or deposit wallet, they can request a new one from either the local branch or contact the School Banking Co-ordinator.

Thank you for supporting our school and helping to teach your child the benefits of saving regularly.

2017 P&C QUIZ NIGHT – 18th NOVEMBER 2017

Tables are selling well for Winthrop Primary P&C Quiz Night. If you haven’t already – please get your table of 10 together, fill in the booking form attached to this newsletter and drop it into the Quiz Night Box at the school’s front office.

It’s sure to be a fun night and a great opportunity to show some support towards our wonderful school by raising some money for the kids!! This year the quiz night is a Hawaiian theme so please decorate your table and be in the chance for a prize.

Bring plenty of money for games, auctions, raffles and drinks – No BYO drinks as we will have our own Tiki Bar selling beer, wine, champagne and soft drinks. Though please feel free to bring along a plate of nibbles and/or pre-order your pizzas on the booking form – these will be delivered to your table on the night.


To make the Quiz Night a big success we would love to hear from any of our local community or business owners who could help with providing a donation for the night!! Any goods, products, services, vouchers would be wonderful. Please don’t underestimate the large or small contribution you may be able to make. Perhaps you might like to donate something to be raffled or silent auctioned. e.g. - gift certificate, movie tickets, restaurant or accommodation vouchers, pamper packs, wine or Bunnings vouchers.

If this is something that you could help with please contact Stacey Foster on 0403122459 or at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. You and/or your business will receive exposure to the 200 people attending on the night, be included on our list of sponsors and also mentioned in our end of year school newsletter.


If you haven’t heard already each class room has been given a coloured basket and is taking kind donations for a number of lovely hampers to be made up and silent auctioned at the Quiz Night. We have some volunteers collecting these donations regularly – we would love it if you could provide a little something and pop it into the classroom basket when you get a chance – these hampers proved to be a great success at raising money at our last Quiz Night.
