With External Stakeholders:
Accounting Trail – in Partnership with National Institute of Education (NIE)
St Hilda’s co-organised this trail with NIE student-teachers in January 2014. It was an event extended to other schools as well, and we saw 9 schools coming forward to join us. Students were equipped with iPads which took place within the premise of St Hilda’s Secondary, led by a POA Hildan in each group.
Temaesk Polytechnic - Accounting and Finance Challenge 2014
In March 2014, SHSS sent in 2 teams comprising of 8 students to participate in the Accounting and Finance Challenge respectively.
The Accounting Challenge put students through the rigors of running a trading business and keeping accurate financial accounts for that business.
The Finance Challenge
The Personal Financial Planning workshop saw students explore the joys of financial planning by using insurance products, financial products and property investments;
The investment game saw students being inducted into the world of bonds and stocks. Students will go through a time warp and witness their portfolio grow (or decline) as a result of their investment decisions.
Students are happy to have walked away with new knowledge gained during the challenges.
