I am standing before all of you this morning (19/07) on behalf of the Form 3 students of 2010 to relate our experiences on the Money $mart™ task.

The task was quite challenging as it required us to be independent in financing our savings in order to meet our goals and most importantly in maintaining consistency in saving.

Without depending on our parents and other ready-finance, we
moved out on our own and engaged in various enterprising activities. Most of the time, we used our natural resources and turned it into cash through door to door sales, road-side sales and bring-and-buys. This was the most challenging and difficult part of the task.

The benefits however, have outweighed the challenges of the task.
The students are now aware of the importance of prioritizing their needs and wants as well as goal setting. The task has taught us to be self-sufficient in financing our savings so that we can achieve our goals. Another benefit is that it has created and developed our enterprising skills. Furthermore, after completing this task, we now believe that our natural resources are the hidden sources of finance that most of us do not utilize, especially us indigenous people. Using our natural resources to earn a living is a skill that has to be developed and this is actually what the Money $mart™ task has taught us.

Ultimately, to our guests from the Fiji Development Bank, the
Form 3 students of this school are so blessed in doing such a task. We appreciate and acknowledge your joint effort in designing and funding the Money $mart™ task and we recommend that you strengthen this partnership for the betterment of our country’s future.
