At Our Saviour, we recognise that learning extends beyond the classroom. As young people move towards their teenage and adult years, we believe it’s important for them to be exposed to experiences that will help to shape them as valued and valuable members of society.
The Sinai Challenge is an exciting initiative that involves students in Year 7, embracing aspects of Service, Skill and Survival.
Dedicated class Service projects, as well as ongoing individual Service activities encourage young people to think outside of their own needs and wants, promoting an attitude of community and generosity.
The Skill component of the Sinai Challenge allows students to pursue an individual project, allowing them to acquire skills that will build their self-esteem and allow them to confidently approach new challenges. Students create anything from their own musical compositions to Billy carts, celebrating the range of skills and interests among our students.
The Survival aspect of the Sinai Challenge is met through physical challenges that build teamwork, resilience and fitness. A Sinai Challenge may comprise of a local walk of approximately 12km per day, or include other challenges such as kayaking or high rope activities that the current group of Year 7 students have not experienced as yet!
The Sinai Challenge is an initiative that provides something above and beyond the curriculum at Our Saviour, endorsing experiences, skills and attitudes that will serve students well beyond their school days.
