The G.A.T.E.WAYS Challenge is an exciting team-based national competition which 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 four different Challenges where the focus is on teamwork over individual performance. Each student has an opportunity to demonstrate leadership in one of the Challenges. Strong emphasis is placed on creativity, lateral thinking and problem-solving skills. 

Schools registering teams will have access to the 2024 Challenge Training Activities, which include engaging and enriching activities along with their corresponding answers. These resources can be utilised to prepare teams effectively.

We take pride in our sponsorship by Swinburne University of Technology.
