Financial Stress and Families

Queensland Academies is committed to the well-being of our students, supporting and preparing them for life after school. We have accessed a library of financial life skills resources developed by an education company called The Wealth Academy, with sponsorship into QACI via QUT.

Log in details have been emailed out to the community for parents to access this database of information. If you require the log in and password, please email invitations@qaci.eq.edu.au and we can supply you with these details.

In the meantime, please enjoy a financial concept for thought.
