Exploring financial sustainability

through health and PE 

This resource encourages students to explore the concept of healthy, wealthy and wise communities. Students explore these concepts through the themes of investment/whakangao, insurance/inihua, KiwiSaver and retirement/whakatā.

This is an integrated, cross-curricular resource, supporting the theme sustainability and can be used in multiple ways. Related resources are available for maths and social sciences. This resource is designed for flexibility and choice.

There are a range of resources to choose from, so schools and teachers can design programmes that allow:

  • Students to work at their own pace using a student planner
  • Teachers to design a programme that suits department, faculty or whole-school planning over a few weeks or a term. This will vary from school to school.
