I and four other girls went to a Trade Bond Game in the Aviva Stadium on Tuesday 20th January. There were many different schools there. We started off by getting a tour of the Aviva Stadium, going into the changing rooms and seeing the pitch. At first we didn't know much about trade bonding, but we were given a presentation about it so we had an idea. During the game we got to buy and sell bonds, cash and shares. It was interesting and great fun and we all felt that we learned a lot by the end of it. We talked to different employees who worked at Bank of Ireland and learnt a bit about working there. We even got to meet Henry Shefflin! Overall it was a very good experience.
