Form 5 Economics and Business students travelled with Mr Draper to the Park Hotel in Mullingar for the Bank of Ireland "Bond Trader" event. This was an activity based event developed around trading on the Stock Exchange. Teams of students were given a certain amount of stocks, shares, bonds and cash. They were then given a circumstance and had to trade and buy based on what they thought the marked would do.
