Junior Challenge Award
The Junior Challenge Award’ was designed to encourage pupils to challenge themselves outside the classroom and to develop as independent learners. It embraces our on-going commitment at St. Gabriel’s to enrich the curriculum for all pupils. The scheme consists of seven challenges, which pupils work on throughout their time in Years 3 and 4. To earn the JCA, pupils complete all the challenges, recording their undertakings in a portfolio or on their own blog. To date these records have included written, photographic and artistic interpretations of the students’ endeavours.
The second phase of the JCA is aimed primarily at students in Years 5 and 6 although of course any junior completing the first phase may take up this double challenge.
