International Teachers Day 2022
Rens van Stigt, lecturer in (business) economics at the Koningin Wilhelmina College in Culemborg, celebrates International Teachers Day by opening the trading day with his students. Mr van Stigt was awarded this honour because he won the last Scholenstrijd competition. At that time the market opening could not take place due to Covid related restrictions.
The Scholenstrijd competition is a digital investment competition for secondary school students. The event is organised by the Capital Amsterdam Foundation.
The new edition of the Dutch national Scholenstrijd competition starts this October. Schools compete for the best result in virtual trading trading on the stock exchange.
International Teachers Day reflects on the social importance of education and expresses special appreciation for teachers.
The group was welcomed by Henry van Glabbeek, Deputy Corporate Secretary Europe at Euronext.
