In another great example of community service, a group of Year 7 & 8 pupils baked delicious morning tea treats to raise money for the annual SPCA fundraising appeal.
Carncot senior pupils strive to achieve the demanding William Pike Challenge Award each year. Similar to the more widely known Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme, each pupil completes a series of demanding physical challenges, picks up a new ‘passion project’ and completes community service components. The personal learning and growth that is facilitated during the year by regular personal journal reflections, is outstanding.
As Deputy Principal, Larissa Hogan, describes, the William Pike Challenge Award programme as an authentic opportunity for students to take responsibility for being active and engaged citizens. The organisation for fundraising is all student led, from planning, advertising, contacting key people, carrying out the event and following up with the charities. Just another example of how Carncot School nurtures character, inspires excellence and unleashes potential of our students.
