About the Economy
“I loved learning about how to invest and what the safest way to invest is.”
“I loved how we could buy our shares like it was real as each price was based off the real life price.”
“I loved that it was very realistic and I learned a lot about investing which I can use in my future.”
Year 9 and 10 Commerce students competed in the ASX Schools Share market Game over 10 weeks. Students invested virtual money to the value of $50,000, choosing from 200+ stocks from on the Australian Stock Exchange. Working as a team, they developed knowledge of the sharemarket, learned how to research companies and gained a greater knowledge of economic and world events. During this unique time in history, this exercise taught our students about wise investments and about risks and rewards associated with the Australian Stock Exchange.
