William Pike Challenge

Our Year 8’s undertake the William Pike Challenge. To successfully complete the challenge over the course of the year students must undertake:

  • 5 off-site outdoor activities that are challenging in nature
  • 20 hours of community service in order to give back to the community
  • 20 hours of a passion project that is completely new to the student

The outcomes of the William Pike Challenge are:

  • Increased capability, resilience and connectedness.
  • Increased participation in the outdoors.
  • Increase sense of belonging and connectedness to home, school and community.
  • Increased student focus and direction while at a formative stage of life.
  • Increased ability to deal with difficult situations and overcome challenges.
  • Increased decision making skills.
  • Increased opportunity to lead a healthy lifestyle.
