School's back for many around the country, and it's hoped a new tool can help boost students' financial literacy.
It's been developed by PMG Charitable Trust in partnership with Life Education Trust New Zealand - building on a previous financial literacy programme.
It's an online platform called SMART$ Online that includes videos, role play and interactive content.
Some 2000 year 9 to 11 students took it for a test run last year - and there were good results.
PMG Charitable Trust's general manager Bridget Lem joins Kathryn with the details.
