The Prescotian Webzine

The attached photo was included in a press article in the St Helens Reporter on 26th January 1973.  A number of PGS sixth formers formed teams in the Stock Exchange Game - designed to teach us all the joys of investing in stocks and shares and presumably to encourage us to become stockbrokers.  My recollection is that we duly invested our allotted funds in week 1 - the Stock Market crashed in week 2 and all the teams in the UK bar one lost money.  The winning team had forgotten to invest anything until the final week of the game - by which time the market was rising and they duly came out on top!  

The photo shows, left to right, Alan Crickmore, Andrew Jack, Tom Storrow (back), Derek Jones, Peter Chadwick, Ged Thomas, John Giubertoni and Alan Hart.
