Code of Conduct

Code of Conduct and Terms of Participation

Talk Money with Ecstra Foundation’s Code of Conduct and Terms of Participation outline the rights and responsibilities of schools, staff and students participating in the Talk Money program in classrooms or virtually/remotely to ensure safe, secure and quality of access for all participants.  By hosting the Talk Money program at your school you agree to the requirements and  expectations set out in this document.

For teachers and school staff

The Talk Money program requires that a teacher or other appropriate staff member be in attendance for all workshops. The workshops will not proceed if a staff member is not present.

By hosting the Talk Money program at your school you are confirming that all participants are currently enrolled as primary or secondary students at your school in Australia.

All students participating in the workshops are expected to comply with this Code of Conduct and the Terms of Participation. Prior to the commencement of the workshops you will share and/or explain the following requirements with your students  and how these align with your classroom behaviour expectations and existing school rules.

  • The facilitators are there to ensure everyone has a positive and safe experience and students are expected  to follow all instructions that the Talk Money facilitator provides.
  • The teacher or staff member in attendance will be actively engaged in the workshop, including monitoring chat channels, the participation and the behaviour of students.
  • If students observe any inappropriate behaviour or material they should highlight this to the teacher or the facilitator as soon as possible.
  • Students should be made aware that all chat history is kept for two years after completion of a virtual workshop. These records can be provided to school staff and authorities when requested.
  • Students who breach the Code of Conduct and Terms of Participation may be asked to leave or be removed from the workshop by the teacher or staff member.

If a teacher or staff member believes that a student may have breached the Code of Conduct or Terms of Participations should address this immediately in the workshop, in addition to any action required as  set out in your school’s rules.
