Paid employment

At the beginning of each term my class of Year 5's and 6's, apply for monitor jobs around the classroom. They are paid a weekly wage on the condition that they do a good job. We sometimes have bonuses and pay raises for an extra good job! Their wages, together with other money they earn for great learning and behaviour, earns a weekly interest rate (in their Savings account). Many students have now learnt the benefits of transferring money into their savings account to receive this 'additional money'Their hard earnt Banqer money is spent on 'Mufti days', milo at lunchtime, fidget spinner time, sitting on the couch and so on (the class decided on items for our Class Shop). This has been really successful and easy to run, as I have Bankers, who do all the work for me!
