What is your “Financial Literacy”? Your child’s? Last Thursday Miguel Catellier presented the students of Grades 9 – 12 some of the information contained in the EnRICHed Academy DVD program. This was the last 2 periods before a long weekend (students did not have school Friday). For an hour and half they listened!! A number stayed and asked questions! There were many positive comments from students and staff (“I wish I would have had this information when I was young”).
For anyone interested Miguel will be giving a presentation on Thursday, May 9th, 7 pm at École Régionale St-Jean-Baptiste (salle multimedia).

What is the value of “good information”? Short term? Over a life time? As parents we all hope to prepare our children for the world, so that they can meet the many challenges and enjoy their life fully. As a parent, who teaches, I realize that I did not always have the best information (I did have an awesome wife to fill in many of the holes).
The area of finance would definitely be an area that we could have done a better job. It is one of those almost “taboo” areas that does not get talked about much with children and students. The DVD’s provide great information, but most importantly they provide a tool to start the conversation on finances.
My children will be getting a copy and will be talking about the information presented. I encourage you to checkout this great tool!
