The School:

Pioneer House High School, a Piper Hill Learning Trust School, is in their first year working with Enabling Enterprise. Previously, students have been busy developing their Enterprise Skills by running Lesson-time Projects in their classrooms expanding on their focus of Applied Learning. Today’s challenge was a fantastic opportunity for students from across the school to put their Essential Skills to the test.

The Challenge: Operation Moonbase

Over the course of the day, students used their Working in a Team skills to establish a new society on a distant moon called Utopia. A series of challenges required teams to use their Enterprise Skills, particularly practising their Problem Solving, Using Imagination and Listening Carefully. Teams needed to select a crew to support them on their mission, then design a new species of animal to benefit society before finally creating a model of their own dream city. The day culminated in a series of persuasive pitches at the Intergalactic Trade Fair which gave each team the opportunity to show off their fantastic ideas.

What they said:

  • “I’ve been walking round to the different classes and what I’ve seen has been really lovely.” – Teacher
  • “They are all really engaged and trying really hard. I’ve been surprised by so many of them” – Teacher
  • “A good Leader like him [Barak Obama] has to be able to present to lots of people so that they will follow him. ” – Student
  • “Do we really have to go to lunch? I want to do this.” – Student

Thanks to everyone for such a great Challenge Day!
