Amazing Race Challenge Day

On Thursday, the whole of G6 took part in an Amazing Race challenge day, which was the culminating activity in a term long Interdisciplinary Unit on Leadership between HPE and Humanities. The unit has focussed on several elements of leadership such as teamwork, cooperation, relationships, motivation and success. Four main leadership styles were covered and we have participated in an extensive discussion and practical activities to illustrate the strengths and weaknesses of each, and to draw out of students the idea that everyone has the skills to be a certain type of leader in a particular situation.

The Amazing Race challenge activities were a netball numbers challenge, where students had to work their way through different routes using a map and their sense of direction. A Water-wise challenge, where students had to use measuring, logic and reasoning skills to solve a problem. Map Masters, which was a code students had to crack using latitude and longitude coordinates, and Orienteering Odyssey which was a race around campus to solve a variety of challenges.
During the challenges students worked in groups that had previously discussed and decided which leadership style which best suit which activity. Each member of the group took turns leading an activity using a specific leadership style.
