May 31, 2013 - Thirty-two of St. Benedict Catholic Secondary School's best and brightest business studies students recently travelled to New York City for a 5-day field trip from May 15-19. Among the activities, students experienced a trading simulation on Wall St. in front of the New York Stock Exchange, while also visiting the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty, and taking a full harbour cruise. Students were able to experience a myriad of business concepts in a real-world setting: from professional sports marketing (New York Yankees Game); to the entertainment industry (Broadway Show); to retail marketing (5th Avenue / Times Square); to corporate social responsibility (Central Park). The travel group also made a special visit to St. Patrick’s Cathedral as well as the 9/11 memorial (Ground Zero). Chaperones included Vice-Principal Stephanie Van Druenen and teachers Giuseppe Politi (Business Studies Teacher) and Gino Posteraro.
