Ready Set Succeed goes virtual

The global COVID-19 pandemic challenged us to think differently about how to present the Ready Set Succeed program to the grade 12 students. For the first time we went completely virtual with this program and the students and staff enjoyed it tremendously. Watch the videos below for a small snippet of what we did. 

RSS presented in a fun way

The virtual format allowed students from all over the area to log in at the same time.

The interactive nature was refreshing and in the process everyone learnt more about financial wellness and how to run a virtual event. 

This ever popular program will never be the same. On to better and bigger things in years to come.
