The KBC Investor Race
Every year KBC organises an ambitious stock market game where you and your pupils can discover what goes on behind the scenes in Wall Street. It's a fun way of getting to know the ins and outs of the floor of the stock exchange, without the risks that real investors run, but still with a chance to win great prizes.
During the game you help each of your pupils to put together their own investment portfolio. On the KBC Investor Race site they can also go through specially devised exercises, to learn about investing in an interactive way. All the documentation ties in seamlessly with the economics curricula and VOET’en (interdisciplinary final attainment levels). If the KBC Investor Race has finished, you will find all the teaching packs on investing on www.kbc.be/scholen (Dutch only).
Are your pupils chomping at the bit to get behind the wheel? Then we'll be happy to help them on their way. On the KBC Drive page a useful short film will tell them all they need to know about how to pass their driving theory test.
The site also features 10 short videos in which the basics of driving a car are explained in detail. And with the convenient KBC Drive app for smartphone and tablet your pupils can do mock exams for their driving theory test. Then they'll be well-prepared for the road ahead!
Do your pupils like music and enjoy hard work? Then StressFactor is for them. They will organise their own music festival at school, with everything that entails. And the stars they want to see on stage? It's up to them to choose!
StressFactor will give you all the information and support you need for you and your pupils to transform your school into a huge festival site, complete with stage, famous national and international artists or bands, and fun sideshows. And all of this will take place in the playground, during school hours.
