Financial Awareness / Entrepreneurship Thursdays
Entrepreneurship - Brainstorm ideas for products that can be sold at the Port Moody Arts Centre 'Winter Treasures' exhibition - then present these ideas to a 'focus group' composed of the gallery manager as well as other community members. Learn to evaluate the competition, set prices, and do marketing for the event. Develop your plan to 'mass produce' your product with the help of local artists. Then be a part of the opening night, and experience 'selling' first hand. Learn about cost of goods sold, profit margin and giving to charity.
Financial Awareness - You are never too young to have fun while learning about the value of money, the power of investing, and the concept of loans and mortgages. Through adaptations of the game 'The Price is Right', combined with 'Monopoly', and 'Rich Dad Poor Dad's - Rat Race', we help the students learn about these financial concepts and more, while honing their math skills and learning about team work. Students of different ages take away different concepts while playing the same games.
Outdoor Playtime - Playground stops at Moody Elementary School and Rocky Point Park are part of our planned after school program. These playgrounds have great equipment and ample room for the students to run, climb, play tag, soccer or just enjoy the park! Other days will feature walks along the lower trails near Port Moody Arts Centre, or playtime at Kyle Park.
Crafts and Games Time - When not outdoors or involved in planned activites, children have access to craft supplies, puzzles, games, books and more.

We can bring tutoring right into the academy so that the sessions are complete by the time you pick your children up for dinner. At Rise Tutoring we overcome learning challenges with a unique approach. We teach our students the most valuable lesson of all: To teach themselves.
