SCENARIO

Can the students from your school handle the challenge? Can they be separated from their friends and work effectively with others? Can they use the individual strengths of their team mates, as well as their combined strength, to defeat the other teams? Will they recognise the benefits of positive input, or suffer from negativity? Will the student who doesn't normally shine glow bright as the group challenges the other teams? Will leadership skills come to the forefront or will they fall by the wayside?

Each team will:

Be selected randomly as students arrive

Read a compass to follow courses through thick bush to find clues relating to effective team work

Cooperate and communicate effectively to help all team mates, when bound together by lead ropes, to traverse an obstacle course

Use instructional language and leadership skills to direct 'blind' team mates to puzzle pieces, that when collected, must then be solved

Listen to a story, then work together to gather questions which must be answered

Be required to use substantive conversation and teamwork to plan, create and execute proficiently in an endeavour to score as many team points as possible in each team challenge

Share in the experience of camaraderie as the team challenges its opponents
