The St. Joseph’s Convent St. George (SJCSG) has emerged the winners of the 2nd G.U.T. Credit Union National Secondary Schools Financial Literacy Quiz.
The final, held on May 28 at the Grenada Trade Centre saw the SJCSG team keenly challenged by the team from the Mac Donald College. Both teams ended rounds one on equal points, however SJCSG pulled ahead in round two by providing quicker, more accurate responses.
Sixteen secondary schools participated in the quiz, including Bishop’s College from Carriacou.
According to President of the G.U.T. Credit Union, Carl Andall, “the staging of an activity of this nature could not come at a better time… we believe that once persons acquire a working knowledge of basic financial transactions they would now feel empowered and confident to face the challenges which we are now faced with as a nation.”
