The G.A.T.E.WAYS Challenge takes place in Term 4. School teams are made up of students who exhibit advanced abilities across the curriculum. Over the course of a day teams rotate through a number of Challenge activities. The focus is on teamwork over individual performance.
Each child has an opportunity to demonstrate leadership in one of the challenges. Strong emphasis is placed on creativity, lateral thinking and problem solving skills. Information about the Challenge will be sent out in Term 3, so that once teams are selected, there is ample time to schedule practice sessions.
Schools registering teams can access a comprehensive handbook with preparation activities including examples and answers.
The Challenge this year begins at the start of October with the finals on 2nd of December. Enrolments open on 18th of July.
