Headteacher Challenge: Week 2

Headteacher Challenge: Week 2

During this period of lockdown, we are setting Weekly Headteacher Challenges, which are open to the whole school community to get involved. Each challenge will be selected from one of three themes: ‘Head’ (or life skills challenges), ‘Heart’ (or wellbeing challenges) and ‘Hand’ (or creative challenges).

These challenges are optional but we encourage all students to take part as all participants will receive house points, which will contribute to the Bint Shield competition. Winners will be announced in the End of Week email, and celebrated on our social media channels, in addition to receiving a weekly prize.

Well done to everyone who took part in our first week’s Challenge, and congratulations to Glynn Jones House for winning the most house points!

This week’s challenge is a ‘Head’ or Life Skills Challenge to help with household chores. With your parents’ permission, select one of the following ways in which you can help out at home as part of our weekly challenge (or both, for extra points!):

  • Financial management – can you research the weekly shop and find ways to save on the things your family buys? Send a spreadsheet or list outlining your savings (with your parents’ permission) and total amount saved to ssimms@sexeys.somerset.sch.uk and we’ll create a leaderboard of greatest % saved winners.
  • Household cleaning – with your parents’ permission, can you do your clothes washing for a week? Remember to consider colours, temperature and types of detergent needed. Ask your parent to send a report on your involvement to ssimms@sexeys.somerset.sch.uk.

The deadline for entries is 3.40pm on Thursday 21st January.

Good luck! Remember to share photos of you doing your challenges with our social channels, or send them in – we’d love to see them!
