CDS Alumnus Introduces Grade 6s to Financial Literacy
This week, our Grade 6s had a very special visitor, Jose Torrealba. Jose is currently in his 4th year of a five-year program at Western University where he is pursuing a double major in Business and Computer Science at the Richard Ivey School of Business. As a CDS alumnus, he introduced himself by showing a picture of his graduating class from 2017 and went on to speak to the Grade 6s about Financial Literacy.
They learned about the importance of thinking through purchases and the different ways to buy items. Jose taught us about the impact of using credit cards instead of our own money to make purchases and about the value of setting financial goals and spending wisely. The students found the presentation and discussion fascinating and had a lot of questions as they thought about the impact of money in their lives.
