Weekly House Challenge


Every week the three houses of Headstart School come together in a unique challenge. Students have to pit their wits against each other in a variety of different tasks.  Students work together achieving a common goal to complete each challenge.  During the challenge, leadership skills, cooperation and social interaction are all developed, as well as being lots of fun for everyone.
