Stock Market Challenge


On Wednesday 7th March five pupils from Year 11 attended an inter-school Stock Market Challenge at Queen’s University Belfast. The pupils worked together in a team through a week of simulated trading on the financial markets, making decisions under pressure, taking calculated risks and experiencing the excitement of the trading floor. Not only did the pupils thoroughly enjoy the experience, they also gained an insight into career opportunities within the financial services sector and developed important skills such as communication, problem-solving and working with others.
