Make your world a better place

Click me to learn more

Starting Friday 30th, we are launching our “Make your world a better place,” challenge. This challenge will then continue through out the summer holidays. Within these tasks are an abundance of OneSchool Skills opportunities to exploit. Why not map your tasks and secure OneSchool Skills citations that demonstrate support your achievements.

HOUSE points will be on offer for all entries, with additional points for Year Winners, Runners-up and Creative Endeavours (those students that may not have won over all, but showed real thought and creativity in selecting and attempting their challenges).

INSET and Summer Challenge

There are three pathways or challenge programmes to choose from: Scout, Voyager and Adventurer. You will notice that these pathways overlap. We will leave it up to you pick which programme you wish to take on (the Voyager programme requiring a little more personal resource). This Friday and over the summer holiday your mission is to complete as many of the thirty challenges as you can. If you think you are a little long in the tooth for this endeavour, make it your duty to support a younger member of your HOUSE team.

You may have completed some of the challenges already, that’s fine, so sign and date them, before selecting and concentrating on the others. Mix up your challenges, sometimes you can run one or more challenges as the same time, that is, in itself, a OneSchool Skill. I will say that the most demanding challenges are most often the more rewarding too. You don’t have to complete all the challenges listed, but give as many challenges as you can a try. Keep an eye on the Hindhead Campus website for surprise challenges that appear randomly and come with additional bonus HOUSE points.

Recording Your Experiences

Print your challenge programme and post it somewhere public and visible. Sign-off and date the challenges as you attempt with the completion date (success is not essential). Keep a brief record of what you did, what happened, your successes and pitfalls along the way. Planning plays an important part in your success.

Some of the tasks involve great amount of thinking and patience. For example, a sunset doesn’t just suddenly appear. – Student review

“Now remember – only your very best work.”

Towards the end of the summer, you’ll need to draw your experiences together. How you do this is completely up to you although it needs to be a visual communication; a photo album or collage, a timeline, a sketchbook, a comic strip or documentary are just a few suggestions. We would love to hear about your experiences, your successes as well as the surprises you encountered along the way throughout your journey. Email your updates, these need to include a photo and no more than 200 words.

‘I picked this as it was something I enjoyed doing. All it involved was Technic Lego parts. This particular model took me about a day to make.’

‘These kits can be found in most supermarkets, also they proved to be very tasty.’

‘This cake was baked for some friends when they came round for tea. Took only about 30minutes to make and the end result was delicious!’

‘This challenge was quite a simple, involving a brief turning out of the wardrobe, filling a bag and taking it to the nearest British Heart Foundation shop.’

For Parents

We hope students find the challenges rewarding as well as memorable. The majority of challenges are designed to be ‘self-directed’ and should be achievable with minimal input from ‘parents or adults,’ our students will need your encouragement and occasional support. Of course, if parents or adults want to join in, then all the better, students will need testers, tasters, audiences and coaches.
