Year 9 Stock Market Challenge

On Tuesday 5 February, the school organized the Y9 Stock Market Challenge. We were sorted into groups of 4 in our houses and each table had a Y12 student to help us. The challenge consisted in investing money into different companies and buying and selling shares. It made us see what it was like to be involved in stocks and business and would help us in the future. At first, it seemed very confusing as most people didn’t know what to do as it was such a new concept to us, but we all got the hang of it soon and it was very enjoyable. It really was helpful to work in groups which taught me a lot about teamwork. Overall, it was a bit stressful but still really, really fun.
