Representatives from insurers such as AA Insurance, AIG, Vero, IAG, FM, Tower and QBE devoted this year’s Insurance Day to enlighten school kids on the concept of risk management.

The exercise is part of the Insurance Council of New Zealand’s (ICNZ) financial capability program, designed to educate students about risk management and the protection of assets.
Members of ICNZ fund the program with representatives from the comms committee closely supporting it.

Program partners are the Young Enterprise Trust and Banqer.

This year council members targeted students from Auckland’s Glenbrae School, Pt England School, Glen Taylor School and Glen Innes School.

The exercise this year involved a volcano simulation with students learning about the consequences to their homes they had purchased in the program.

A highlight for the kids was getting the chance to win a women’s rugby sevens shirt which had been signed by the whole team and rugby balls signed by the All Blacks.
