James Ó Coileáin - International Economics Olympiad
James attended the International Economics Olympiad which was held in St. Petersburg from 24th July until 1st of August this year.
It was a wonderful experience for James. Teams from twenty-four countries competed. There were three components to the competition, financial literacy, economics and a team presentation of a business plan.
James was delighted when he was awarded a bronze medal for his individual performance together with a full tuition scholarship to study Economics at the Higher School of Economics National Research University in the 2020/2021 academic year.
The photograph was taken at the awards ceremony, James was very proud to wear his past pupil's tie!
Huge thanks to Mr Barr for his excellent and inspiring teaching.
