At Forrester High School we want to encourage a positive attitude towards regular saving for the future.
We hope that you will agree with us and help promote this positive attitude that is essential if our students are to maintain a good sense of money management as well as experience future good health and wellbeing.
Forrester High School has teamed up with Capital Credit Union to offer the students here a chance to start on that path. “Forrester Future Funds” is our very own credit union. Students can regularly bring money into school and deposit it in their own savings account. When they leave school they can carry on saving through Capital Credit Union.
As well as offering a chance to save our credit union will provide, for those involved in its running, an excellent opportunity for gaining money management experience through the day-to-day business of the school branch of the Credit Union.
There is no set amount that needs to be deposited and a deposit does not need to be made every payment day.
If you would like your son/daughter to take up this opportunity and become a member all you need to do is click on the appropriate link above and download the application form. Fill in the application form and return it to the school office.
The school will verify the identity of your son/daughter (no passport or birth certificate required) and pass the application form and identity verification form to Capital Credit Union.
Capital will then post an account package directly to your home address.
Once you receive this package your son/daughter is ready to save.
If you have any queries in regard to Forrester Future Funds Credit Union please contact Lorna Watson (Mathematics department)
