A lesson on investing has paid dividends for Grade 10 Business students at Bishop Ryan Catholic Secondary School.
The students have been mentored this semester by Miles Radoja, a retired executive from the financial services sector. In an activity to teach students the difference between long term investing and short term trading, Radoja engaged the students in a stock market simulation game. At stake were prizes, donated by Radoja, for students who produced the highest returns.
The students received their prizes just in time for Christmas.
While the prizes were gladly accepted, teacher Gelsie Riverso-Casella stresses “the best prize is the experiential learning, the opportunity to learn from community partners, and gain financial literacy.“
