World Challenge Ethos
Global citizenship is one of the key aims of the World Challenge programme. Challengers will experience cultures and environments literally a world away from their home country. This brings an appreciation of the challenges facing other communities and hopefully will awaken a desire to understand, explore, and develop a global perspective on life. It is a truly life-changing experience.
Challengers are expected to take ownership and responsibility for their team mates and the group’s plans, and this focus is at the centre of the World Challenge learning experience. Participation and teamwork are essential factors behind any successful expedition; it is up to the individuals working together within the team whether or not they will get to that bus stop on time or have a well put together meal that night!
World Challenge provides a safe yet challenging expedition through which its leaders support and facilitate the development of the young people in its care through tough but exhilarating experiences. They allow the exploration of comfort zones, promoting personal growth, independent thinking, and resourcefulness, all key qualities to help build successful and fulfilling lives.
We currently have a group of 12 students working towards their three-week expedition in the summer from Years 11, 12 and 13. They recently ran a fundraising quiz night and raised nearly £700 which will go towards a community project, trek, and cultural exchange. We would like to thank anyone that came along and supported the event.
Miss Perry is meeting regularly with her Year 9 students working towards their two-week expedition to Nepal in the summer. They have a meeting with parents and challengers this week (Wed 2nd November).
Follow our Twitter account @TringSchWorldC1 for updates. Our Tring School Facebook page also posts regular updates.
The next round of expeditions will be launched in the summer term. The Year 8 students will get the opportunity to head out on expedition in summer 2024, and current Year 10 and 11 students will go in 2025. The destinations for both of these are TBC.
