The William Pike Challenge Award

Wesley Intermediate School is excited to be working with William Pike and the William Pike Challenge Award team in 2019. A select group of students will be invited to participate in this once in a lifetime opportunity.

"The William Pike Challenge Award is a structured, specialist year long programme, designed for teachers to foster personal development in year 7, 8 & 9 students. By participating in 5 outdoor activities, 20 hours community service and 20 hours passion projects, students contribute to their community, build up a reserve of confidence, resilience and life skills that prepare them to overcome challenges and achieve their personal best. Developing relationships with peers, whanau and the local community, taking risks to build confidence, resilience and leadership and strengthening students' roots within their value system is critical to building universal skills, and this is exactly what the William Pike Challenge Award does.

From William Pike

"I’m really excited about having the Wesley Intermediate students taking part in the WPCA. We're moving into a fast paced and changing world. I believe our young people need to be equipped with the universal life skills to step outside of their comfort zone and achieve their personal best, no matter what life throws at them."
