Year 8 students participate in The Real Game
This week all Year 8 students took part in The Real Game, which involved activities and quizzes that focused on some very ‘real’ topics including careers, salaries, lifestyle choices and living costs.
Great fun was had creating a ‘dream cloud’ of the student’s ideal house, car and leisure activities. Students were then given a career profile at random complete with salary. They had to then adjust their dream clouds to ensure that their budgets balanced, taking account of both income tax and the need to save.
Students found The Real Game to be both educational and enjoyable.
