Our latest exciting venture is here!
World Challenge expedition to Morocco
On Friday 26th June 2015 students from Years 11 and 12 watched an inspirational DVD in school from an organisation called World Challenge, who organise life-changing expeditions around the world for young people.
As a school we are very excited about the opportunity this will give students to do something really unique that will make them stand out from the crowd. The experience will provide them with a wealth of new skills which they will find invaluable in school, college, university and in the world of work.
We would like to invite you to join us in school for an informative Parents’ Presentation, delivered by World Challenge, where you too will have the opportunity to hear all about the amazing challenges that your son/daughter will have the chance to experience.
The Parents’ Presentation is booked for:
Tuesday 30th June at 18.30PM
Location: The Brakenhale School, Main Hall
It will be an informative and interactive presentation with plenty of opportunity for questions, along with video footage and images of the expeditions and what it will be like to take part. There will be lots of information on how the students will raise the fee to take part in this expedition, what they will do whilst overseas, the safety and back-up on the expedition and the benefits they will derive from taking part.
World Challenge encourages the students to raise the money themselves; it’s an integral part of their ethos. On average, students raise 80% of their expedition fee themselves. They have a dedicated Fundraising Support Team on hand at their head office and an entire section on their website to help motivate and encourage Challengers with their fundraising effort.
I hope you are able to join us and I am sure you will find it interesting.
