Prospective prefects are put through their paces at Outdoors in the City

Tuesday 02 February 2016

At Ark Globe we take the selection of our thriving Student Leadership team very seriously. The first step in the process is to go through an application and interview process from which a smaller group of applicants is chosen to then go on to take part in more challenging activities. Today, the quest continued when 37 year 10 students went on a trip to the outdoor activity centre, 'Outdoors in the City'. The students took part in activities that allowed them to test the strength of their growth mindsets, communication, team work and problem solving skills and their ability to trust each other. For some it also meant over coming fears of heights to make sure they reached the top. The day was a huge success with all the students, even the quiet ones, getting involved in all activities to the best of their abilities making it very hard to reduce the group of students down further to make the final selection of prefects. 

One of the students, Sarah Oyekola said about the day: 'Today was amazing. I learnt how much team work matters when you want to achieve the goal set'.
